HANNIBAL Rome's Greatest Enemy

by | Read by John Lescault

History • 5.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2022

In this biography of Hannibal, the story is propelled by narrator John Lescault's clear articulation and pacing, which aptly convey the calculating genius of the renowned general. Lescault's distinct voice recounts Hannibal's harrowing journey as he leads the Carthaginian army, with its elephants, up and down the harsh terrain of the Alps toward Rome. The measured narration evokes images of Hannibal's skill as a master tactician who, with uncanny foresight, outwits the Romans in battle after battle--Trasimene, Trebbia, Cannae--ending with his ultimate defeat at Zama. Throughout, Lescault's performance allows listeners to absorb Hannibal's character--his amazing tenacity, courage, and unyielding loyalty to his country. Even though the narrative flow is disrupted by drop-in edits of Latin pronunciations, Lescault delivers this exciting story with style.
