BOOK REVIEW: Hannibal
by G.P. Baker
Reprint of 1929 book does an excellent job of furthering information about Hannibal. Favorable bio treads well worn ground with crisp prose and confident conclusions.
Dodge, Baker, and Grant are three of my favorite authors. Years and new archaeology/scholarship may make some of their conclusions obsolete, but you can’t beat them for a firm grounding in the essence of classical history. Baker’s Hannibal is a keeper.
