The Phrygian Campaign was the reconquest of Phrygia by Alexander the Great.

War

Aharon and a large Persian field army from the Province of Assyria invaded the Empire of Macedon, facing Alexander the Great's army of Greek footsoldiers and cavalry. After three defeats, Alexander hired some Silver Shield Guards, who turned the tide of battle and slaughtered the Persian army.

Next, Alexander and his army invaded the province to recapture it, and faced Arsames's army of Kardake Infantry and tribal cavalry. His spearmen again proved superior to the weakling Persian army, who were destroyed and Phrygia retaken.
