At the bloody battle of Cannae, he trounced a Roman army twice the size of his own. With his brothers, he subdued nearly all of Italy, Spain and Northern Africa. A cunning tactician, he secured victory for Bithynia at sea by catapulting poisonous snakes onto the decks of his enemy's ships. Biographer Ernle Bradford draws on the historical writings of Livy, Polybius, Plutarch and others in re-creating the fantastic story of the greatest general since Alexander the Great.

    " An excellent book that was the introduction to Hannibal and the Second Punic War for me, and led to my deeper study of the general and wars between Rome and Carthage. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dan | 1/20/2013

    " This is the best biography of Rome's greatest antagonist, to date. Bradford is a vital companion to Livy in understanding the Punic Wars, through the eyes of its great champion. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Hadrian | 7/11/2012

    " Pretty good biography of a fascinating figure. Author only uses Roman sources, but tries his best to balance their interpretations. Could have used a little more detail with the famous battles (and some better maps) but still a fairly interesting book. "
