5.0 out of 5 stars A brilliant review of the general who bested Hannibal 19 Sep 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
I was pleased to see that the man who bested Hannibal and established the might of the Roman military for centuries to come receive his due recongition. Lidell-Hart's book on Scipio Africanus reads more like an action\adventure novel. It will keep you wanting to read more while at the same time presenting a very accurate and modern portrayal of the great Roman general. I highly recommend this book to anyone who wishes a study in history, military strategy, or the classics as it will bring into balance the exploits of Hannibal and his eventual defeat at the hands of Scipio Africanus.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Greatest General in the world exposed by Sir/Capt. Hart Liddell 19 Mar 2009
By James B. Kirk - Published on Amazon.com
This book is a page turner, once you read 10 pages you don't want to set it down. I heard about this General, but everybody downplays in favor of Hannibal(who was probably the 2nd greatest General in the world). The author makes history come alive, and you can see and visualize what actually happened at the dawn of the Roman Empire. I read a lot of History books, and most are really boring (don't try any book on the Greek General Thucydides-you will fall asleep in 2 minutes). You can tell the author has spent a great amount of time researching his subject.

Basically, Scipio Africanus, turned a near disaster (the fall of the Roman Empire by Hannibal) into the height of expansion of Roman to rule the civilized world... Off course, he is a rare combination, he was a brilliant politician, a genius at the tactical, operational and Strategic level of War.

My hats off to the author for a well executed book. But this book, it will be an instant classic in your library.
