Vol 85 of the Penguin s Little Black Classics series The Little Black Classics Box Set was originally 80 books Penguin released last year another 46, expanding the series to 126 I ve been reading Livy s The History of Rome The Complete Work this year, and this book is just a piece of Livy s War with Hannibal which includes books 21 30 This small book only includes Book 21 of Livy s History of Rome For Livy on Hannibal, go here. What a great read although not the best translation of Livy s work but enjoyable none the less.If you were thrilled by the adventure of Hannibal fighting against the romans as a child, than this is certainly for you. I struggled with this Perhaps the disappointment began when I realised this wasn t an account of the life of our favourite cannibal Instead, it details the Carthaginian invasion of Rome.My assumption is that there s military insight here, alongside political commentary I can t really confirm, as my eyes were glazed over the entire time I can barely remember a thing I was thinking about what I was going to have for dinner Not even the macabre notion of bringing elephants along to cross the Alps appealed to me here I was out.The plan is to continue the Little Black Classics range until I ve read each one I ve already bought After that, no They are taking up precious reading time and provoking an irrevocable ire in me which I no longer wish to feel. Interesting perspective of the war that Hannibal waged against Rome Livy being a Roman historian in his time portrays Hannibal as this barbarian who cares little for anyones life, and forgets to mention the monstrosities that Rome herself caused all other regions and nations Livy downplays the defeat of the Romans and accredits it to many other factors other than Hannibal Altogether an interesting perspective on a war that would prove to other nations that Rome herself was not invincible. Hannibal By Livy 59 BCE 17 CE We have nothing left in the world but what we can win with our swords Penguin Little Black Classic , 54 pages, no chapters, directly from the great work of Livy, 142 books of which 35 still survive.Very interesting insights into the invasion of Italy by the Carthaginians, the political astuteness and military genius of Hannibal. Ta je slaba Hannibal, Dumbo in dru ba slon kov, ki se je sprehajala po Alpah je sigurno opisana v kak ni bolj i knjigi, mogo e so e kak en selfie stisnal The best military tactician of all time. Haha yeah dude thats not fucking weird or whatever, just bring some elephants with u 2 cross the alps, no worries This book was short and sweet and makes me really, really want to read about Hannibal I would really appreciate if anyone can offer some suggestions
