Summary
Carthage, 146 BC. This is the story of Fabius Petronius Secundus - Roman legionary and centurion - and his general Scipio Aemilianus and his rise to power: from his first battle against the Macedonians, that seals the fate of Alexander the Great's Empire, to total war in North Africa and the Siege of Carthage. Scipio's success brings him admiration and respect, but also attracts greed and jealousy - the closest allies can become the bitterest of enemies. And then there is Julia, of the Caesar family - a dark horse in love with both Scipio and his rival Paullus - who causes a vicious feud. Ultimately for Scipio, it will come down to one question: how much is he prepared to sacrifice for his vision of Rome? Inspired by Total War: Rome II, the bestselling Total War series, Destroy Carthage is the first in an epic series of novels. Not only the tale of one man's fate, it is also a journey to the core of Roman times, through the world of extraordinary military tactics and political intrigue that Rome's warriors and citizens used to cheat death
