Book Description:

An enthralling novel about one of the finest commanders in military history - the man who defeated Hannibal

From the Back Cover:

'Masterful . . . even better than Hannibal.' Allan Massie

In the name of Rome, Scipio Africanus conquered the hard-won empires of Hannibal and of Alexander the Great. With breath-taking battle scenes and violent passions, here his story lives again. Compelling and vivid, Scipio reveals the aristocrat, general, politician and aesthete behind the Roman triumph. This novel of love and betrayal recreates the life and times of a military genius who discovers he is only a man.

'Leckie brings the battle-tactics and manoeuvres almost cinematically alive and the sense of blood and sweat, chaos and horror linger powerfully in . . . utterly gripping.' Scotsman

'A fine achievement, a thoughtful and stylish piece of historical fiction.' Daily Telegraph

'By turns lucid, enlightening and thrilling, this is the historical novel at its best.' Historical Novel Society
