Summary

Of all the generals in the ancient world, none matches the accomplishments of Alexander the Great, Julius Caesar, and Hannibal of Carthage.

This audiobook will look at the lives and leadership styles of these three commanders. Alexander conquered the fullest expanse of the known world and brought Europe and Asia under one sovereign. Julius Caesar was a master statesmen, capable of translating military victory into long-term political gains. His vanquishing of the Gauls and his political opponents laid the groundwork for several centuries of Roman imperial might. None could match the tactical genius of Hannibal, who threatened the destruction of Rome at the Battle of Cannae.

Whatever their backgrounds, these rulers showed that the right military commander at the right time in history can destroy an empire, change civilization, and alter the course of world history forever.
