Subject: 2nd Punic War, Hannibal. Boy's adventure story. --- Boys reading the history of the Punic Wars have seldom a keen appreciation of the merits of the contest. That it was at first a struggle for empire, and afterwards for existence on the part of Carthage, that Hannibal was a great and skillful general, that he defeated the Romans at Trebia, Lake Trasimenus, and Cannae, and all but took Rome, represents pretty nearly the sum total of their knowledge. To let them know more about this momentous struggle for the empire of the world Mr. Henty has written this story, which not only gives in graphic style a brilliant description of a more interesting period of history, but is a tale of exciting adventure sure to secure the interest of the reader.--- 12 illustrations, Special Foreward by J. Steven Wilkins (Amazon.com)
