Editorial Reviews

Review

“My cavils in the previous paragraph notwithstanding, Hoyos and his team are to be complimented for their success in bringing the multifaceted “action history” of the wars to life in a striking and sophisticated way.”  (Bryn Mawr Classical Review, 1 January 2013)



 

From the Back Cover

Widely considered the greatest conflicts of antiquity, the Punic Wars irrevocably changed the course of world history. A Companion to the Punic Wars provides a comprehensive new survey of the three wars fought by Rome and Carthage between 264 and 146 BC. Featuring a series of thought provoking essays from a community of distinguished international scholars, the collection provides a unique portrayal of the bloody “hundred years’ war” that created a legend out of Hannibal and left Rome with a world empire.

The three wars are covered comprehensively from the Roman and Carthaginian military and naval strategies to diplomacy, economic and social factors, historiography, and the achievements of the charismatic Carthaginian general Hannibal. A Companion to the Punic Wars offers invaluable new insights to students and scholars alike into an epic struggle that had far reaching impacts on the Western world.

Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I purchased this book for an academic paper, and could not bear to let it go. Now that I am blogging history as well as writing historical fiction, this book is still a great resource.

The chapters provide a history of the background leading to the Punic wars, discuss the account of the wars by Polybius as well as other contemporary historians, and discuss each of the Three Wars in some detail. Military enthusiasts and political scientists will find an equal amount of interesting and informative material herein.

I highly recommend this book.

Format: Hardcover
Companion to the Punic Wars is a great text for anyone interested in the Punic Wars, or writing any academic literature on the subject. This text was the bulk of my research for an undergraduate thesis and has an extensive bibliography allowing for further research on the subject. If you are writing on the topic in any extent, you must read this text. Dedicates a large chunk to each individual war, but also dives into theoretical perspectives on ancient historiography and classical literature. Great Resource.
