The War with Hannibal The History of Rome from Its Foundation, Books XXI-XXX

Review :

This was absolutely fantastic! It took me a long time to get through it as I had to look up so many locations, names and events throughout the reading to keep up. There was a lot of name dropping in this one, of course the greats like Scipio, Hannibal, and Hasdrubal, but I couldn't even begin to list the countless others here and there mentioned and their subsequent relations to each other and events. I think it would take a very vast study to go through this to that extent. It really was a fascinating war with amazing tactics employed and an absolutely astounding number of people/animals/cities involved. One of these days I might get the courage up to tackle the whole of Livy's works, they always delight.
