Map Size: 400x400 (Large)
Difficulty: Normal

I got the Idea to build this map after watching a show about Alexander the Great on the History channel. I do not know whether this battle was in the movie, so if it was, it does not represent Holywoods version of the battle.

Midway through Alexander the Great's campaign to conquer the world he encountered the important trading city of Tyre. His armies quickly swept through the mainland city and took control, but the real jewel of the city was it's island harbor/fortress. Alexander had no fleet to assault the island harbor, so he attempted a diplomatic resolution. He requested to be allowed on the island to worship the gods in the temple. According to traditon, by letting Alexander onto the island the people of Tyre would be letting him rule them, so they refused and reminded him that there were plenty of temples on the mainland city of Tyre. Alexander was furious that they would defy him so he descided to show them that they were part of the mainland by connecting their island to the mainland. His first dike attempt failed, so he constructed a second and bought a fleet from the local merchants. With a three front (fleet from the sea and ther two dikes) attack Alexander assaulted Tyre...

The units you are given are to represent the units that Alexander would have used, his spearmen and pikemen that Geece had long used in warfare, and his famous Companion Calvary. This map is a little easy if you attack from only one point with all your troops, so try attacking all the points at the same time.
