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. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: APR 94]
