The final book of Martin Tessmer's ground-breaking saga about the rise and fall of Scipio Africanus, one of history's greatest generals. In Scipio's End, the author weaves the words and events of the ancient Republican period into a stunning story of Scipio Africanus' final years of glory and triumph.The year is 194 BCE. As he heads into his fiftieth year, Scipio has become the First Man of Rome, the most powerful citizen of the powerful Roman Republic. Though he is weary from decades of military and political wars, Scipio cannot rest. The northern Gauls have cornered the army of his fellow consul, who begs for Scipio to rescue him. Far to the west, the Army of a Hundred Nations masses to attack Rome's Grecian allies, led by the ruthless Syrian king Antiochus III and his brilliant military advisor, Hannibal the Great. As Greece falls before them, the two conquerors turn their eyes towards Italia. Only Scipio stands between them and the dissolution of the nascent Roman empire.Scipio's End is a tale of loves lost, friendships betrayed, the corruption of the incorruptible, and the triumph of honor and genius over insurmountable obstacles. Written in the historical present writing style, Scipio's End gives you the feeling that you are there in ancient Rome, witnessing history as it unfolds before your eyes. Read the final book in the series that Amazon readers have called "Brilliant," a "'Must-read," and "As good as it gets."
"The sword knows not the hand that wields it, it cuts for all the same." Scipio Africanus. Scipio's Dream. ANCIENT SPAIN, 206 BCE. Scipio has defeated the Three Generals of Carthage, and Iberia is his for the taking. To achieve his objective he must defeat the indomitable Iberians and cope with the Latin Party's unrelenting efforts to undermine him. Scipio assaults the unconquered fortress of Illiturgis, copes with mutiny within his own ranks, and battles the overwhelming rebel hordes of Indibilis and Mandonius. Hannibal the Great still rampages through south Italia, preparing to join his brother and overthrow Rome. Scipio hatches a bold plan to defeat Hannibal and achieve his dream of establishing a lasting peace. To achieve it, Scipio must build an unfunded army from volunteers and outcasts while Flaccus and Fabius work to have him imprisoned. Laelius, Marcus Silenus, Pomponia, Amelia, and Prince Masinissa join forces with Scipio to help him achieve his dream. Scipio's Dream is a fact-based tale of intrigue, betrayal, conquest, horrific reprisal, and heroic sacrifice. Follow Rome's greatest general as he confronts overwhelming military and political resistance in his quest to win the Second Punic War.

The world often misunderstands its greatest men while neglecting others entirely. Scipio Africanus, surely the greatest general that Rome produced, suffered both these fates. Today scholars celebrate the importance of Hannibal, even though Scipio defeated the legendary general in the Second Punic War and was the central military figure of his time. In this scholarly and heretofore unmatched military biography of the distinguished Roman soldier, Richard A. Gabriel establishes Scipio's rightful place in military history as the greater of the two generals. Before Scipio, few Romans would have dreamed of empire, and Scipio himself would have regarded such an ambition as a danger to his beloved republic. And yet, paradoxically, Scipio's victories in Spain and Africa enabled Rome to consolidate its hold over Italy and become the dominant power in the western Mediterranean, virtually ensuring a later confrontation with the Greco-Macedonian kingdoms to the east as well as the empire's expansion into North Africa and the Levant. The Roman imperium was being born, and it was Scipio who had sired it. Gabriel draws upon ancient texts, including those from Livy, Polybius, Diodorus, Silius Italicus, and others, as primary sources and examines all additional material available to the modern scholar in French, German, English, and Italian. His book offers a complete bibliography of all extant sources regarding Scipio's life. The result is a rich, detailed, and contextual treatment of the life and career of Scipio Africanus, one of Rome's greatest generals, if not the greatest of them all.
