Product description


A brilliant account of the final campaign of Hannibal, the great Carthaginian commander who came nearer than any to overthrowing Rome. The author contrasts Hannibal s Generalship with that of his adversary Scipio Africanus, and shows how Roman patience and ruthlessness overcame Hannibal s military genius. --Chris Buckland


"The book is crisply written, well researched, and thoroughly documented. While the narrative is sparse, the information contained is densely packed.  Carey makes use of two talented cartographers, Joshua Allfree and John Cairns, who also share the book's byline, and for good reason.  The superlative maps and tactical diagrams are what make this book stand out from every other volume on ancient battles....  In black and white, they are of tremendous value in explicating the tactical genius of both Scipio and Hannibal, the strategic implications of the Punic Wars, and the details of the battle of Zama itself.  Carey's book is a superb piece of scholarship about one of the most dramatic and decisive battles in the ancient world."

-Jim Tucci, Associate Professor of National Security Studies, Air University Journal of Military History
