Posted on January 11, 2014 | in NEW BOOKS | by

scipio copy copyThree men, three vows: one to destroy Rome, another to protect it, a third to defeat the both of them. Born into a wealthy and powerful military family, Cornelius Scipio is a brilliant scholar who dreams of educating the common people of Rome. But he has promised to become a soldier and defend Rome against its sworn enemy, Hannibal the Great. Young Scipio soon finds himself fighting wars on two fronts: in Italia against the Carthaginian army and in the Roman Senate against Cato the Elder’s traditionalist party. When all fear to confront Hannibal and his brothers, Scipio steps forward to become Rome’s boy general. Leaving his mother and betrothed to wage political war at home, he sets forth to defeat the undefeated, relying on his visionary genius to compensate for his outnumbered army of raw recruits.

This is the first book in the Scipio Africanus Trilogy, based on the exploits of Scipio Africanus during the Second Punic War. It is available on Amazon as a paperback and ebook. ISBN-10: 1494305127 ISBN-13: 978-1494305123
