Hannibal's magnificent feat in taking an army, complete with elephants, across the Alps in winter to surprise the Romans has fascinated people since ancient times. This account considers the controversy about the route the Carthaginians took, and offers a convincing solution. Old theories and new detective work are interwoven with a vivid tale of human ingenuity and endeavour. Colour photographs of snow-covered paths and passes emphasize just how bleak conditions must have been on this desperate expedition in which many lives were lost and which, ultimately, was all for nothing.
