There is more to Hannibal than elephants and the Alps. The struggle between Rome and Carthage was at first a struggle for empire, and afterwards for existence on the part of Carthage. Hannibal defeated the Romans at Trebia, Lake Trasimenus, and Cannae, and all but took Rome. Malchus, Hannibal’s cousin, witnesses the political corruption in Carthage at the time of its decline. As political parties fight among themselves for supremacy, young Malchus begins to question the usefulness of fighting for a debased civil government. Mr. Henty’s classic work, The Young Carthaginian, will expose readers to the manners, customs, religion, and politics of Carthage and Rome around 220 B.C. Within the pages of The Young Carthaginian the importance of Italian geography comes alive and leaves one breathless at Hannibal’s feats in overcoming these barriers.
