    This was an interesting account of Hannibal provided by this French author who is a Professor of Archaeology at the University of Grenoble He utilises most contempary and some modern accounts of Hannibal and his campaigns and also offers his views on those accounts to assist the reader in judging the accuracy of the textAt times I found the narrative to become a bit muddled and somewhat dry but overall he offers a decent biography of this Great Commander I would have appreciated a in depth account of his battles but the author does provide details of every facet of Hannibals campaigns including the political background at the timeFor those looking for a detailed military history of Hannibal and his role in the Punic Wars I would recommend Nigel Bagnall's 'The Punic Wars' For a view from the other side I would recommend 'Scipio Africanus Greater than Napoleon' by Liddell HartHowever if you just want a decent account of Hannibal and an over view of his role in the second Punic War than this book should fit the bill
