Can anyone recommend a good book re: the battles of the Successors that is heavy on battles and Orbats?

Great Battles of the Hellenistic World by Joseph Pietrykowski. A good one by Pen & Sword. Does the periods of Alexander, Successors, and then Successors V. Rome. It includes every battle of the phalanx where information is extant (Chaeronea to last Chaeronea). It include diagrams, is concise (not a heavy tome), and is very interesting. It is also very cheap for the amount of pleasure gained from a good read! I highly recommend it!

See if you can find "Rollin's Ancient History" volumes 4,5 and 6. Some libraries still have copies. Basically everything you are looking for.

Being only slightly familiar with the subject I read Dividing The Spoils and liked it.

I thought that was a good one too.
