Alexander goes on his conquests on Persian empire and especially in West India
against the King Poros in the summer 326. But, as soon as he arrived at Hyphase’s
edge ( Bias) , Macedonian soldiers refuse to go farther.
From their departure in 334 before JC, they travelled 20 000 kilometers and
wish they join now their family again. The army retraces his steps, near Nicée
and Bucéphalie. A fleet was built by Alexander to make it possible for
a part of the army to join the Persian Gulf by sea. A second part that was directed
by Alexander walked along the coasts and a last part travelled inside the country.
The 3 armys were going through a living hell : they suffered from a shortage
of water and food in the desert for the men with Alexander and the ones with
Néarque. At least, Macedonians arrive at Suse in 324 before JC.
Alexander moves from capitale to capitale, from Suse to Babylon and takes
on organizing all his possessions. But in June 323, after a banquet, he suffers
from a bout of fever and died on the 13rd.
Within 10 years, Alexander built a huge empire, destroyed Persian empire but
had no successor…
