I wanted to read this for some time to see how the land of Alexander finally came under the under Roman boot. Its an interesting read. Basically, Macedonia learns its phalanx is out-of-date too late and they also suffer from poor leadership. At the same time, the Romans could have been checked had the Macedonians improved relations with Greek allies instead of having to fight Rome alone. In the end, Rome triumphs (as we know) and the dog eat dog world of ancient times continues.
