I just need to know the surrounding details of the story; if he was dreaming, or if both sides did in fact see these things.

332 BC Phoenicia, Tyre: During the siege of the trade capital of Phoenicia by the Greeks a fleet of flying shields is described as plunged from the sky and crashed upon the city walls.
329 BC: Alexander the Great records two great silver shields, spitting fire around the rims in the sky that dived repeatedly at his army as they were attempting a river crossing. The action so panicked his elephants, horses, and men they had to abandon the river crossing until the following day.
Swooping down low and scattering horses and men. I think it even brought down the walls of Tryre with a light if I remember right
