    This is the breathtaking adventure of the great Carthaginian general who shook the foundations of Rome. In the world's first "global" conflict, Hannibal Barca marched up and down the Italian peninsula for 18 years, appearing well nigh invincible to a Rome which began to doubt itself for the first time in its history.

    Karen says: "Fascinating - not to be missed!"
    "great read"
    Overall

    get yourself a map of italy and even better a schematic of the battles. It is hard to picture some of the info w/o it.
    This work illusidated an interesting part of history that most people gloss over. I would highly recommend it for
    any military soul looking for a superb leadership example.

    be warned of the sound effects between chapters. I thought my stereo had gone nuts!

  • Flu: The Story of the Great Influenza Pandemic of 1918 and the Search for the Virus that Caused It

    Feeling feverish, tired, or achy? Listening to Gina Kolata's engrossing account of the 1918 Influenza epidemic is sure to give you the chills. A gripping work of science writing, Flu addresses the prospects for a great epidemic recurring, and considers what can be done to prevent it.

    Overall

    This work is quite facinating. Anyone interested in emerging diseases will enjoy it. The opening sequences describing the
    death and destruction were very dramatic and attention grabbing. I would also recommend "Demon in the Freezer" if you
    liked this work.
