Overview

From one of the most brilliant military historians of our time, this is the classic biography of Rome's greatest general and the victor over Rome's greatest enemy, Hannibal

Scipio Africanus (236-183 B.C.) was one of the most exciting and dynamic leaders in history. As commander, he never lost a battle. Yet it is his adversary, Hannibal, who has lived on in public memory.As B.H. Liddell Hart writes,"Scipio's battles are richer in stratagems and ruses—many still feasible today—than those of any other commander in history." Any military enthusiast or historian will find this to be an absorbing, gripping portrait.

If you like Roman history this is a fascinating book. Very few historians can take apart war strategy and politics in the same book. Definitely a great read for those who like Roman history and a must read for those who want an alternate view of the Second Punic War. The book really comes down to a panegyric of Scipio and it is very convincing.
