$12.00
SKU: FC-127

Hamilcar led his son, nine-year-old Hannibal, to a sacrificial fire and made him swear that he would never be a friend to Rome.

Look Inside the Book

Few moments have been so decisive for such an important man. Get ready to be hooked by the complete story of his life -- and learn about one of history's most famous generals at the same time! Hannibal crossed the Alps, fought Rome to a standstill, and emerged victorious at one of the most famous battles in military history—the Battle of Cannae.

This thrilling biography—written by Jacob Abbott and newly edited for younger readers—offers a glimpse into the life of a man who did some of the most daring feats in military history, but still could not stop the rise of the Roman empire.

Hannibal is part of Makers of History, a 19th century biography series by two brothers—Jacob and John S.C. Abbott. Reprinted by Canon Press, these biographies have been edited and brought up-to-date for readers twelve and up. Not only are these editions given vintage style paperback covers, but they also include introductions that explain where these men and women fit into the timeline of history.

From the Book:

"Nero was a madman, who demanded and received obedience and honor from the fearful around him, and for a short time received it. Those Romans who overthrew him did not understand the root of his madness, but the Christians who suffered under his reign did. Nero’s madness was sin. A rival kingdom was established just prior to Nero’s reign. At the time of the event, it was announced to shepherds by angels. Some centuries earlier, it was declared that this kingdom, and more particularly, this King, would break the nations with a rod of iron and dash His enemies to pieces like clay pottery. It was in this manner that Psalm 2 proclaims Christ’s Incarnation as a declaration of God’s triumph over His enemies." -From the Introduction by Ben House

Jacob Abbott was an American writer of children's books.

He died in Farmington, Maine, where he had spent part of his time after 1839, and where his brother, Samuel Phillips Abbott, founded the Abbott School.
