Show synopsis With 60 pages of additional articles, references, and bibliographies of recommended reading. The Second Punic War between Carthage and Rome, is sometimes called Hannibal's War. Hannibal, one of the greatest generals in history, surprised Rome by moving his army across Spain, and over both the Pyrenees and the Alps mountain ranges into northern Italy. From there he won victories at Trebia, Trasimene, and Cannae, and threatened to conquer the City of Rome itself. Malchus, a young upper-class Carthaginian, crosses the Alps with Hannibal. But during the subsequent campaigns he finds he has to choose between his love of country and his love of freedom. Sword in hand, he fights the Romans, escapes the misery of being incarcerated in a dungeon, and slips away from the mines of Sardinia. But can he escape the ultimate threat-the lifelong vengeance of the Roman Empire?
