The last installment of a trilogy on the life of Alexander the Great. Alexander is installed in his headquarters in Persia, and after an uprising from his own Greek soldiers, and order for the Persian troops is dispatched to deal with them. Does anybody see the irony in that? Alexander conquers, and with a hostile take over with his Greek army, he wants to have them done away with by the enemy army they just fought with. Will the Persians go through with it? This is the same small Greek force that defeated armies all over the realm, including the ones now ordered to fight them.
CBS reporters interview all the key players for the political climate. In eloquent speech, Alexander tells of the charges he has brought up aginst his troops who have committed treason in his eyes. The Greek army only wants to return home to Greece, with Alexander at their lead. With the speeches done, will there be a reunion, or a battle? Suddenly there’s an unexpected outburst. What new development is this? Has the battle been fueled, or diffused?
Alexander’s coronation ceremony goes on as scheduled, and the CBS reporters describe its regal nature, and procedure. But wait, there’s a surprise ending, and an epilog to tell what became of Alexander, his troops, and their march back to Greece.
