Praise

“A masterpiece of style, imagination, and erudition.”—Victor Davis Hanson, author of A War Like No Other

“Outstanding . . . [a] superb chronicle of events that shaped the fate of Western civilization.”—Booklist

“Dramatic and comprehensive . . . O’Connell has established the new standard for studies of the second conflict between Rome and Carthage.”—Publishers Weekly
 
“[O’Connell] writes with clarity about an era shrouded in speculation.”—Providence Journal-Bulletin
