A sad indictment of a corrupt and profit striving cadre of privileged despots, who believed money and riches could buy anybody.
The hero of this story, the father of Hannibal, learns what it is to be a Roman and strive for domination, not profit.
This book will probably lead onto others and finally Hannibal's accomplishments, and I look forward to those and the development of the characters
However I know enough that Carthage's eventual decline and compete obliteration by the Romans was inevitable
Given the differences in their nations ethics
I enjoyed it
