3.0 out of 5 stars interesting read as an introduction into the thinking behind the Catharginian ethos
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...

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

Nice spin on history, good characters that I grew to care about. A very good book to lose yourself in for a while.

The Sword of Carthage

I rarely struggle with motivation to read a book but this story made me want to give up about a third of the way in. I got to the end but I had to force myself to finish it.
I don't know if it is translated from another language but clearly the proof readers had a day off from this one as it is full of spelling/grammatical mistakes which I found irritating.
The plot is pretty thin and there is a lot of (irrelevant) padding in this book.

Excellent read explained a lot about the causes of the destruction of \Carthage. The book refers to the first of the Carthaginian wars with Rome I hope there is more to come.
