Editors Note Alexander the Great was a powerful ruler. His armies fearlessly conquered Europe and Asia. How? Soldiers on horseback were his most dangerous weapon. For thousands of years, horses carried humans into war. Even today, with the use of tanks and other means of transportation, horses still hold an important place in the military. Look inside to learn more about these heroic horses and how they have helped millions of people on and off the battlefield. Book jacket.
