Victory in China, strategic defeat of Japan Imperial Army, led Alexander to more concentration on states-man duty and building empire, but empire had to be stronger and wider.

For their good services, Alexander promoted his generals. Philotas became "Strategos of Cavalry", Eumenes became "Main Strategos" and Antipater was named as "Strategos of Mobile Infantry Forces". West Europe campaign was assigned on commanders Antipater and Eummenes. Philotas led cavalry support units, because he was building his own army to attack against Skyth Empire and conquer Scandinavia.

As reaction against Hellenistic and Carthaginians invasion with support from south pro-Hellenistic Celts and Germans, northern and western tribes leader formed coalition "United Tribes Coalition" to struggle and resist against advancing enemy armies. They gathered extremely large, but poorly equipped and poorly trained army. Antipater and Eumenes needed only province guard units and few rifle-armed infantry lines supported by "Mobile Infantry" and siege weapons.

First phase of campaign was divide attack to two directs. Eumenes army with Philotas support moved to north and invaded north Germans tribes territories. Antipater attacked from south, across Alps and conquered south Gallic territories where he met with Carthaginians army. Carthaginians secured old Greek ports and successfully captured south Hispania, where they built their own cities and eliminated little local resistance.

Second phase was phase of unite. Antipater forces changed course to north and attack on rear of Gaullic tribes. Eumenes and Philotas captured Bohemia and Germania, destroyed Kelt, Germanic and West-Slavic resistance in one brutal attack and change course to west, to unite with Antipater army. Attack was quick and led to total destruction of UTC forces. Elite Hellenistic veterans, equiped with rifles and with armoured forces were invincible enemy for primitive tribes.

Main battle was clash of Normandy where UTC gathered core of their forces and resist to Hellenistic Army advance.

Third phase was invasion to Britania where still was large enemy presence. Alexander meanwhile traveled to conquered territories and ordered enslave all peoples except those who surrendered without resistance. Hellenistic slavery markets became very rich.

Alexander then participate on Brittania invasion, because he wanted to visit this island and for last time, fight. He led cavalry and mercenaries forces against Britons and also "Division of Special Weapons". His biological and chemical attacks led to annihilation of 45% island population and total collapse of enemy defense. Hellenistic casualties was minimal. Rest of population was enslaved and sent to inland Europe. Their property and land was gift for soldiers and poor peasants of Hellenistic Empire. Soon, Brittania became rich province of Empire and Alexander retired to king palace and returned to states-man duties.
