Synopsis

Synopsis

By the end of the First Punic War against Carthage, the Romans had reduced the capital city of the Carthaginian Empire to a heap of ashes and destroyed its culture. In 219 BC, however, Hannibal, the eldest son of the charismatic general Hamilcar Barca, began the Second Punic War and was so successful that he threatened to destroy Roman power completely. Hannibal was a cool, thoughtful general, and can arguably be described as the greatest general of antiquity. His genius rested on a mixture of bluff, double bluff, and an ability to use all troop types to their best advantage. The battle of Cannae remains a chef-d'oeuvre to which generations of subsequent generals have aspired.

"Dr. Nic Fields’ 64-page paperback reconstructs Hannibal’s life from his early years to his death and legacy. Eye-popping color plates created by Peter Dennis are complemented by a wealth of illustrations and photos reproduced in either black and white or color."
- Toy Soldier & Model Figure (December 2012)
