I agree. Once we capture that area we can make a vast empire throughout the world.
Once apon a time there was a land named Macedonia. In this land there was a king names Philip the 2 and his son, Alexander. The Greece city-states were at war and they saw an oportunity.
I have an enormous empire. All of my hard work has paid of.
They were able to capture the Greece city states but, shortly after the king was murdered. This now means that Alexander is king.
Alexander decided to carry out his fathers plan and make a great empire. Every city he came to he would burn down and be kept as slaves if they did not surrender. If the city did surrender they would keep there government officials and would repair all the damage they did to the city.
Alexander went on to rule much of the know world at the time. He used varing strategies to keep his empire together such as adopting a conquered lands religion.
Sadly, at the age 32 Alexander died of maliria
After the death of Alexander his empire crumbled. The government officials could not sustain that much land. Alexander the great controlled the biggest empire in the ancient world.
