I first read this book in High School, close to its original publication date. Harold Lamb paints a very sympathetic portrait of Hannibal, his family and his culture. Lamb's Hannibal was not the rapacious conqueror the Romans later made him out to be. Instead, he is show to be a great leader who rallied the nations of the Mediterranean in a vain attempt to stem the tide of Roman expansionism. This is an excellent read for students and a good 'perspective-read' for anyone with an interest in classical history.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

This is a great book and a very old one, but the facts remain true. Hannibla was an incredible guy and I would be proud to meet the biographer of this great tale! -A high School student-Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
