I heard of Arrian in the memoirs of Hadrian.He was a man of great energy and great skill. I thought he sometimes tries to shift the blame away from Alexender where he had blame for a event e.g. the great slaughter commited at Thebes and his fault at killing his friend. I was however very impressed at how leninent Alexender is in a very brutal world and his military genius is very impressive and stands out at every turn of the story. I was very interested in the flesh and blood Alexender and hopefully the second part of the Anabasis should be even better.
