There Alexander found that Porus had established a strong defensive position, using his infantry and his two hundred elephants to form a living wall along the east bank of the river. Solving this difficult military problem took all of Alexander’s tactical skills and involved a daring secret crossing of the flooded river. In the end, the outcome was the same as that of his earlier battles: the total destruction of his enemy’s forces. Much to the displeasure of Taxiles, however, Alexander spared Porus. Instead, impressed by the nobility of his defeated opponent, who asked only to be treated “like a king,” Alexander restored his kingdom to Porus and even added new territories to it.Although Alexander did not realize it at the time, the confrontation at the Hydaspes was to be his last pitched battle. As the army marched farther eastward through the Punjab, morale dropped steadily. The crisis came when Alexander reached the river Hyphasis, the modern Beas. Exhausted by the stresses of fighting and marching during the endless rains of the summer monsoon, terrified by rumors of yet another great river valley occupied by great kingdoms possessing thousands of war elephants, and doubtful that they would ever return home, the army mutinied. This time not even Alexander could persuade his soldiers to go on. Ultimately, Alexander yielded, defeated by his own army, and agreed to return to the Indus, where he had already ordered the construction of a great fleet. 332 Greece Meets God In about 332 BC a man that Hannibal regarded as the greatest general of all time, a man who was young and seemingly unstoppable, commander of the most explosive army that had then been known until then, was laying siege to the tough city of Tyre, on the Mediterranean's east coast near Israel. 336 Alexander The Great Alexander became king of the ancient Macedonian state.
