Rome was determined to conquer the world, but one nation dared to stand in its way. The courageous Carthaginians muster an army under the fearless leadership of General Hannibal. Malchus, a noble young soldier, and Hannibal's cousin, joins the army in its quest to rid their land—and the world—of Roman oppression. Emboldened by their victories, Hannibal leads his army on a perilous journey across the Alps to crush Rome at its heart. But when Malcus is sent back to gather reinforcements, help is denied and he is charged with treason. Malcus must escape the hands of his betrayers and come to Hannibal's aid before Rome destroys them.

 

The Young Carthaginian contains all the elements of an epic tale—harrowing wolf hunts, imprisonments, and daring escapes. A story of bravery and sacrifice, victory and defeat—a story not to be forgotten.

~Bill Potter, historian, lecturer

 

“G. A. Henty...gives us all the faith and chivalry, the pluck and fury, the mystery and intrigue that history rightly told demands.”

~George Grant, author, historian, pastor
