Once again Alexander devised a plan to confuse his enemy. For several nights, he sent  the cavalry to various spots along the bank and instructed them to make noise and raise  war cries. Porus, of course, followed them the first few times, but eventually stopped  responding to Alexander's bluffs. On the night planned for the attack, Alexander divided  the troops into three groups. One would remain in the original spot to keep Porus off  guard, while a second group prepared for a crossing that would take place only if  Alexander succeeded in clearing the fords. Alexander himself led the third group,  consisting of about 15,000 infantry and 5,500 cavalry. Porus sent an initial group of  about 2,000 cavalry, led by his son, to attack the Macedonians while they were crossing  and to drive them back into the river. However, the Indians did not make it in time to

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
