    The Title Says It All

    Scipio Africanus truly was greater than Napoleon. Second only to Alexander the Great, he outshines his rival in nearly every respect. Hart describes the incredible military career of Scipio from his return to Rome at the age of 19 having suffered defeat at the hands of Hannibal Barca to the pinnacle of his accomplishments at the battle of Zama in 202 B.C. where he soundly defeated his nemesis. Scipio also faced many of the problems that modern military commanders face, in that he was not a head of state, had limited funds, and was told he had to find his own troops to carry out his plan to assault Carthage. That Scipio was able to accomplish the defeat of a military equal, force Carthage into submission, and create a lasting peace was testament to his abilities as a soldier and as a statesman. Liddell Hart may have written this book in 1927, but it has not aged and it remains an important work today. I highly recommend this book to anyone with an interest in military history.
