Beginning in ancient Spain, where Hannibals father had carved out a Carthaginian empire, the novel traces the origins of the war, the opening moves, and Hannibals inspired choice to attack Rome via a land route most believed impossible. In graphic, panoramic prose, Durham describes the battles, including the icy slaughter of the Trebia- the mist-shrouded battle along Lake Trasimene- the battle of Cannae, in which Hannibals outnumbered force surrounded and decimated seventy thousand Romans in a single afternoon- and Zama, the hard slog that proved to be the decisive contest.Along the way we meet a variety of major historical figures on both sides of the conflict, as well as characters representing the vast array of other ethnicities who played a part in the war: Iberians and Gauls, Numidians and Libyans, Macedonians and Moors.

Hannibals family is brought to life: his wife, mother, sisters, and young son, as is Publius Scipio, the young Roman who was the only match for Hannibals genius on the field of battle — and who eventually defeated him.Pride of Carthage is a stunning achievement in historical fiction, one that will transport readers to a world of mesmerizing authenticity of character, event, and detail.
