The Hydaspes 326BC
Juggernaut simulates Alexander the Great's final, major battle, The Hydaspes. Having gained hegemony over virtually all of the civilized western world through a series of stunning victories over the late Great King of Persia, Darius III, Alexander headed east, mostly to satisfy his compulsive curiosity and need for conquest. Gobbling up tiny tribes, running into a few pockets of guerrilla resistance, but mostly advancing at will, the Macedonian juggernaut moved into what is now known as India, only to be met at the river Hydaspes (today the Jhelum) by the army of the local, and powerful, rajah, Porus. His crossing thwarted by the presence of Porus's elephant corps lining the banks of the deep and swift river, Alexander used a ruse to effect an upriver crossing and force Porus into a pitched battle.
