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 is now 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.
