    Phalanx adds two half-map battles to the GBOH system. Both battles are tense affairs, closely balanced and interesting and playable looks at phalanx vs. phalanx warfare.

    Note: To play Phalanx, you need a copy of Great Battles of Alexander Deluxe Edition.

    Phalanx covers two of the major battles in the waning days of the Successor Wars, in which the Greek city-states and leagues and the descendants of the original Diadochoi were still fighting for Hellenic supremacy, and in which the phalanx -- the massive, heavy infantry formation brought to peak efficiency by Alexander -- was still in its heyday. The armies in these battles are very Macedonian in style, with a lot of mixing of unit types and capabilities, with the exception that, because of the terrain, reliance on cavalry is almost non-existent. The phalanx itself was still the army's anchor, although it was only a generation away from its initial comeuppance at the hands of a Roman army at Cynoscephalae.
