Hannibal: Great General of the Ancient World
As the son of a great general, a solider at the age of nine, and a sworn enemy of Rome, Hannibal Barca was destined to lead the ancient city of Carthage to greatness. Commanding an army of foot soldiers, cavalry, and elephants, Hannibal waged battle after battle against the Romans in the Second Punic War, inflicting some of the greatest losses experienced by the Roman army. From his early victories and his bold march across the Alps to his final years on the run and the ultimate defeat of Carthage, Karen Clemens Warrick details the life of this incredible leader.
