Thorough and engaging

This is a very accurate and well-written history of all three Punic wars. It helps that the underlying legend matter, especially the story of the first few years of Hannibal's intrusion of Italy, is interesting and shocking.

History of the Punic Wars

I loved this audiobook a lot for doing work and learning history at the same time. The storyteller is very good but the survey is a bit dull.

Excellent narrative on Ancient war

Is it not a strange thing when we understand the paucity of stuff about, arguably, the greatest battle of the ancient world that we have only one side's account because the victors, the Romans, killed everything concerning the Carthaginians after their loss in the third war.

Punic Wars

I got the audiobook complete enough in describing the Punic wars. I can now say that I have a grip on what they were all about and why they are important in the history of the world.
