8 Reviews
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.

Review: Scipio Africanus

User Review  - Jim Rushton - Goodreads

Scipio was perhaps the most unrated general of the ancient world. A great story, but Hart's a bit hard to read. Read full review

Review: Scipio Africanus

User Review  - Avis Black - Goodreads

This is one of those books well worth reading if you wish to learn about the Punic Wars, however you have to prepare yourself for a somewhat arduous trek. Liddell Hart was not a great writer of prose, and you need patience to get through the book. Nonetheless, I found the journey rewarding. Read full review
