Many know the historical story of Alexander the Great. As a young man, in his twenties, he conquered most of the known world of his time. Of course, there was brutal fighting involved. Nevertheless, many city-states, upon seeing the approach of Alexander’s great army, chose not to fight. Alexander the Great was as much a warlord as he was a diplomat. As his campaign progressed, when major cities were in the path, he always gave them a chance to negotiate rather than face the attack of his army. This is the reason Alexander the Great was able to assemble the largest amount of territory under his sole command in record time. Besides being a great general and a warlord, Alexander knew the power of diplomacy. He learned this from his tutor, when he was just a boy. His tutor was the famous Greek philosopher, Socrates.
