  1. Alexander the Great (356 BC – 323 BC)

Surely most famous on this list, and one of the histories well-known ancient generals. He succeeded his father on the throne of Macedonia when he was only 20. He spent the rest of his, rather short, life in series of military campaigns that led him from Greece and Balkans, across western Asia and Egypt to India. By the time he was 30 he created the biggest empire world has seen at the time. Some of the most famous victories were battles of Issus and Gaugamela, in which he broke the power of Persian empire he conquered. He died at 33, for unknown reasons, keeping his record loss-free.
