The Armenian Campaign was the conquest of Armenia by Alexander the Great in 328 BC.

Battle

The first attack went horribly wrong, with Alexander underestimating the use of Persian cavalrymen in the fight. Now, training Silver Shield Guards to be the core unit for the battle, he invaded again and slaughtered the enemy cavalry.
