DVD: Alexander the Great & The CatapultDVD Review - This is a review of a History Channel DVD about a medieval castle siege that took place a thousand years before there were medieval castles! Alexander took the island of Tyre which was located a half mile off the shore of Lebanon. And the island had a massive stone wall surrounding it. It was for all practical purposes a castle. And Alexander the Great sieged and took it by building a land bridge out to it and creating a new type of siege engine called the Torsion Catapult. The land bridge out to the island is stil there over 2,000 years later. Quite amazing. My review of Alexander the Great & the Catapult
