Hannibal - Patrick N Hunt

So it turned out that the bulk of this book is not so much a biography of Hannibal as it is an overview of the Second Punic War. Perhaps that is just the "biography" of Hannibal that the sources can support (and, to be honest, I've needed to read a history of the war for some time now), but it does feel like calling Hunt's book a biography is overselling it.
