The Second Punic War: Hannibal marches against Rome

second punic war

The thin, alpine air rushes between the two towering mountains dominating the horizon; whipping past you, biting your skin and icing your bones.  When you’re not freezing where you stand, you’re hearing and seeing ghosts; worried that a band of barbarous, war mongering Gauls — eager to plunge their swords into any chest that wanders …
