In 329 B.C. Alexander tried to cross the Indus river when he was intercepted by flying, gleaming silver shields as described by his historians. These
flying shields swooped down on his cavalry several times, making both his soldiers and the enemy soldiers disperse in wild retreat.
Seven years later, while trying to invade the city of Tyre, another
flying shield hovering over the battlefield, shot a beam of light at the fortified wall of the city, destroying a section of it, thus facillitating
Alexander's conquest of the city.This event was recorded by both sides of this epic battle, making this event all the more credible.
My hunch, is that Alexander was in league with these alien allies, as all great empires seem to have accounts of gods from the
skies interacting with their leaders. Maybe this was not necessarily known by his generals or historians as this arrangement may have been made in
secrecy. Perhaps the first event when the crafts swooped down on the armies was used to prepare the soldiers for the reality of this type of
interaction on behalf of their great general, which would eventually become even more dramatic as we see in the second written account. I first heard
of these accounts on the history channel's "ufo files", I believe on the episode titled "ufo's, then and now", but I could be slightly off on
the tiltle of the episode. I also did a simple google search on this event and it was very easy to find.
