Hannibal the Carthaginian, who grew up with military influence from his father, goes on to lead an attach against Rome.
The writer seems to capture the essence of the heart of Hannibal. It's obvious that the writer has done his research, but, at times, i had great issues withthe pacing of the story. For a story that's set amidst so much intrigue and excitement, I oftne found the pace too slow or contemplative. This is an epic story, but that doesn't mean it has to move slow. The dialogue is good, if not a bit stilted at times.

    The aerial combat scenes are told artfully. War stories are my least favorite genre, but this one kept me intrigued. You captured a lot of the detail of the time and flight squadron. The character of Rimmons is excellently drawn, being a perfect focus for this story since he loves planes and thinks he has them mastered, but discovers they can be used for something besides... read
