(From the publisher):
Born into one of the great Carthaginian families, as a boy Hannibal learns that life is cruel, that mercy is a weakness, and that Rome must be destroyed. Only eighteen when his father is killed, he assumes command of the Carthaginian army. Driven by hate, he hones his troops into the leanest and finest of forces and sets out to break the Roman yoke. Always defying the impossible, Hannibal seems invincible. He leads his army of mercenaries and elephants over the Alps in the middle of winter, invades Italy and inflicts upon the Romans a series of astonishing, crippling defeats.
