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.

Professional reviews

"Toward the end of the third century B.C. a young North African general embarked on a bold challenge to the emerging Roman Empire. His name was Hannibal. Although he failed, the calamitous echoes of that war reverberate to our day. Bradford captures the seventeen-year drama of the Second Punic War, the Hannibalic War, Hannibal's military genius and political failure. Jones's reading is slow, thoughtfully paced, and expressive, mixing qualities of an actor with those of a fine lecturer. Because military campaigns don't easily lend themselves to listening, however, study some early maps first. P.E.F. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine"
