Charles R. King utilizes his academic education in physics and classical history to apply an original quantitative and empirical face to the study of one of the most monumental tasks in military history. Accessible to both the professional historian and the buff, this analysis enables the reader to approach Hannibal's crossing from a new and different outlook and even uncovers a few surprises.
Charles R. King's specific area of interest has always been the Punic Wars which have fascinated him since childhood. This work not only utilizes his education and academic background, but also takes advantage of his experience as a career military officer and of physical visits to many of the significant sites of the Punic War.
