Publisher Comments:

“Adrian Goldsworthy is one of the best young historians writing today.” —John Keegan

The cast of endlessly fascinating characters includes the generals Hannibal and Scipio, as well as treacherous chieftains, beautiful princesses, scheming politicians, and tough professional warriors.
