The History of Rome, Volume 3: Books 21-25 | [Titus Livy]

The History of Rome, Volume 3: Books 21-25

The incredible saga of Hannibal and his invasion of Italy in 218 B.C. is the subject of this third volume of Livy's magnificent history. As only Livy can describe it, we are swept into the era of the Second Punic War and given a ringside view of the leadership of both sides. The stirring account of Hannibal crossing the Alps, the brutal description of Cannae, and the relentless Roman siege of Syracuse are some of the highlights of this remarkable story.

Publisher's Summary

The incredible saga of Hannibal and his invasion of Italy in 218 B.C. is the subject of this third volume of Livy's magnificent history. As only Livy can describe it, we are swept into the era of the Second Punic War and given a ringside view of the leadership of both sides. The stirring account of Hannibal crossing the Alps, the brutal description of Cannae, and the relentless Roman siege of Syracuse are some of the highlights of this remarkable story.

Never has the undaunted courage of the Roman soldier been more fully accounted for, and never has the language of history been more dramatically set down as it has in the searing pages of Titus Livy. The Hannibalic War lives on in this mighty epic of ancient literary history.

Livy's The History of Rome continues in an additional three volumes.

    "Great story, terrible performance"
    Would you try another book from Titus Livy and/or Charlton Griffin?

    I love history, especially military history, but did not enjoy this classic by Livy very much because of the performance. Mr. Griffen's style seems to be to read as fast as possible with little inflection. He reads as though he is simply trying to get through the book quickly rather than trying to breathe life into this ancient text. He is capable of reading impressively fast, but he is very hard to listen to. He brought to mind the speed talker from the old Fed Ex commercials.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Charlton Griffin’s performances?

    Never
