Segundo volumen de la trilogía iniciada con Africanus. Déjate atrapar por esta trepidante novela sobre la guerra, el amor, la envidia, la amistad y la supervivencia. Publio Cornelio Escipión, conocido por el apodo de Africanus, que era considerado por muchos el heredero de las cualidades militares atribuidas a su padre y a su tío, sólo tenía veintiséis años cuando aceptó comandar las tropas romanas en Hispania. Pero de ellos no sólo había recibido estos magníficos atributos, sino también algunos enemigos, entre otros Asdrúbal, el hermano de Aníbal, y el general púnico Giscón, quienes harían lo posible por acabar con su enemigo y masacrar sus ejércitos. En un fascinante relato que recrea un momento decisivo de la expansión de Roma, Santiago Posteguillo hace al lector cómplice y testigo de las batallas, conquistas y derrotas de Escipión y sus ejércitos.

Publius Cornelius Scipio, known by the nickname Africanus, who was considered by many to inherit the military qualities attributed to his father and uncle, was only twenty-six years old when he agreed to command the Roman troops in Hispania. Yet he received from them not only these magnificent attributes, but also some enemies, among others Hasdrubal, Hannibal's brother, and the Punic general Giscón, who would do everything possible to destroy his enemy and slaughter his armies. In a fascinating story that recreates a decisive moment in the expansion of Rome, Santiago Posteguillo makes the reader an accomplice and witness to the battles, conquests and defeats of Scipio and his armies.

The Death of Carthage

Book Synopsis The Death of Carthage by : Robin E. Levin

The Death of Carthage tells the story of the Second and third Punic wars that took place between ancient Rome and Carthage in three parts. The first book, Carthage Must Be Destroyed, covering the second Punic war, is told in the first person by Lucius Tullius Varro, a young Roman of equestrian status who is recruited into the Roman cavalry at the beginning of the war in 218 BC. Lucius serves in Spain under the Consul Publius Cornelius Scipio and his brother, the Proconsul Cneius Cornelius Scipio. Captivus, the second book, is narrated by Lucius's first cousin Enneus, who is recruited to the Roman cavalry under Gaius Flaminius and taken prisoner by Hannibal's general Maharbal after the disastrous Roman defeat at Lake Trasimene in 217 BC. Enneus is transported to Greece and sold as a slave, where he is put to work as a shepherd on a large estate and establishes his life there. The third and final book, The Death of Carthage, is narrated by Enneus's son, Ectorius. As a rare bilingual, Ectorius becomes a translator and serves in the Roman army during the war and witnesses the total destruction of Carthage in the year 146 BC. This historical saga, full of minute details on day-to-day life in ancient times, depicts two great civilizations on the cusp of influencing the world for centuries to come.
