    Story
    (82)

    An epic history of a doomed civilization and a lost empire. The devastating struggle to the death between the Carthaginians and the Romans was one of the defining dramas of the ancient world. In an epic series of land and sea battles, both sides came close to victory before the Carthaginians finally succumbed and their capital city, history, and culture were almost utterly erased.

    Amazon Customer says: "Fascinating Overview, Occasional dry stretches"
    "Sorry but this book is very hard to follow for me."

    Story
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    not recomend this book as its just too hard to follow without knowing already a lot of background as the names of places and people and the area being spoken about is very complex and the dates being spoken about jump back and foward a lot. So not a very easy to listen too book.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Richard Miles again?

    No


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    Probably nothing without re-writing the book.


    Was Carthage Must Be Destroyed worth the listening time?

    No


    Any additional comments?

    I like to learn a bit of history, but this is the kind of thing that puts me off.
