Three men, three vows: one to destroy Rome, another to protect it, a third to defeat the both of them. This is the saga of Scipio Africanus, one of history's greatest generals, and his history defining clash with Hannibal the Great and Cato the Elder. Born into a wealthy and powerful military family, Cornelius Scipio is a brilliant scholar who dreams of educating the common people of Rome. But he has promised his father he will become a soldier and defend Rome against Hannibal, its sworn enemy. Young Scipio soon finds himself fighting on two fronts: in Italia against the Carthaginians and in the Rome against Cato the Elder's austerity party. When all the veteran commanders fear to confront Hannibal and his brothers, Scipio steps forward to become Rome's boy general. Leaving his mother and betrothed to wage his political war at home, he sets forth to defeat the undefeated, relying on visionary genius to compensate for an outnumbered army of raw recruits. This is the first book in the Scipio Africanus Trilogy, based on his exploits during the Second Punic War. The second book, The Three Generals, will be out in mid-2014.

Scipio has defeated the Three Generals of Carthage, and Iberia is his for the taking. To achieve his objective he must defeat the indomitable Iberians and cope with the Latin Party's unrelenting efforts to undermine him. Scipio assaults the unconquered fortress of Illiturgis, copes with mutiny within his own ranks, and battles the overwhelming rebel hordes of Indibilis and Mandonius. Hannibal the Great still rampages through south Italia, preparing to join his brother and overthrow Rome. Scipio hatches a bold plan to defeat Hannibal and achieve his dream of establishing a lasting peace. To achieve it, Scipio must build an unfunded army from volunteers and outcasts while Flaccus and Fabius work to have him imprisoned. Laelius, Marcus Silenus, Pomponia, Amelia, and Prince Masinissa join forces with Scipio to help him achieve his dream. Scipio's Dream is a fact-based tale of intrigue, betrayal, conquest, horrific reprisal, and heroic sacrifice. Follow Rome's greatest general as he confronts overwhelming military and political resistance in his quest to win the Second Punic War.

The world often misunderstands its greatest men while neglecting others entirely. Scipio Africanus, surely the greatest general that Rome produced, suffered both these fates. Today scholars celebrate the importance of Hannibal, even though Scipio defeated the legendary general in the Second Punic War and was the central military figure of his time. In this scholarly and heretofore unmatched military biography of the distinguished Roman soldier, Richard A. Gabriel establishes Scipio's rightful place in military history as the greater of the two generals. Before Scipio, few Romans would have dreamed of empire, and Scipio himself would have regarded such an ambition as a danger to his beloved republic. And yet, paradoxically, Scipio's victories in Spain and Africa enabled Rome to consolidate its hold over Italy and become the dominant power in the western Mediterranean, virtually ensuring a later confrontation with the Greco-Macedonian kingdoms to the east as well as the empire's expansion into North Africa and the Levant. The Roman imperium was being born, and it was Scipio who had sired it. Gabriel draws upon ancient texts, including those from Livy, Polybius, Diodorus, Silius Italicus, and others, as primary sources and examines all additional material available to the modern scholar in French, German, English, and Italian. His book offers a complete bibliography of all extant sources regarding Scipio's life. The result is a rich, detailed, and contextual treatment of the life and career of Scipio Africanus, one of Rome's greatest generals, if not the greatest of them all.
