Re: Conquest of Italy alternate history

Thanks Alexias! :)

But there was another article on my mind. It was a fictional account of how Ptolemy made terms with the romans to not advance any further than south of Italy or something like that..

Do you know of that one? I am looking for it.

Conquest of Italy alternate history

Hey

Just wanted to know if someone has the link to the article about how if Ptolemy reached Italy, he would have come to an agreement with Rome and split Italy in two. Interesting fiction, but I can't seem to find it..

Re: Indan biased article on Alexander

Well of course... the entirety of the fantasy tale as contended by certain indian conspiracy theorists.

But Alexander won the battle against Poros, right, Paralus?

Re: Indan biased article on Alexander

Ok but wait....a thousand pardons, perhaps its due to the night out with the boys last night I am not clear in thehead, or maybe I need to read up on irony, but Alexander didn't lose against Porus, did he??!

What did you mean by "debilitating and embarassing end" in context of Alexander then??

Re: Indan biased article on Alexander

Re: Indan biased article on Alexander

Re: Indan biased article on Alexander

Sandros, I applaude you response! I agree with you, and ironically, I've found lately that it mostly is those in India who is most adverse to Alexander... why??

And they keep on with the nonsense that Porus actually won the battle... dear, dear me...

Re: Indan biased article on Alexander

Thank you for replying, Alexias! :) I find it somewhat strange, the scant nature of replies in this thread.. :shock: 1. What are your thoughts on rest of what she wrote? I find her very anti faction.. like on some personal crusade to disparage Alexander. 2. Interesting though about later greek conqu...

Hello! Been a really long time since posting here. Anyway, came across this silly biased article written by some woman who makes a futile attempt to degrade and diminish Alexander's achievements. What are your thoughts on it? Here's the link... not a very long article. It is fairly recent... https:/...

Re: Battle of Magnesia

Thank you, both. Just finished reading Appian and Livy.. He had great success on the left, Antiochos... Sean you wrote, "which continued for some time because the Romans were too scared to come to grips with them." What do you mean? The romans were scared to come to grips with the phalanx? It seems ...
