    One thought on “Hannibal”

    1. Vol 85 of the Penguin's Little Black Classics series. The Little Black Classics Box Set was originally 80 books. Penguin released last year another 46, expanding the series to 126. I've been reading Livy's The History of Rome: The Complete Work this year, and this book is just a piece of Livy's War with Hannibal (which includes books 21-30). This small book only includes Book 21 of Livy's History of Rome. For more Livy on Hannibal, go here.

    2. What a great read although not the best translation of Livy's work but enjoyable none the less.If you were thrilled by the adventure of Hannibal fighting against the romans as a child, than this is certainly for you.

    3. Interesting perspective of the war that Hannibal waged against Rome. Livy (being a Roman historian in his time) portrays Hannibal as this barbarian who cares little for anyones life, and forgets to mention the monstrosities that Rome herself caused all other regions and nations. Livy downplays the defeat of the Romans and accredits it to many other factors other than Hannibal. Altogether an interesting perspective on a war that would prove to other nations that Rome herself was not invincible.

    4. Hannibal By Livy (59 BCE - 17 CE)‘We have nothing left in the world but what we can win with our swords’.‘Penguin Little Black Classic’, 54 pages, no chapters, directly from the great work of Livy, 142 books of which 35 still survive.Very interesting insights into the invasion of Italy by the Carthaginians, the political astuteness and military genius of Hannibal.

    5. Haha yeah dude thats not fucking weird or whatever, just bring some elephants with u 2 cross the alps, no worries
