The risen : a novel of Spartacus by David Anthony Durham( Book )

6 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in English and held by 545 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A historical novel of one of the most storied uprisings of classic times by an emerging master of the genre. From the author of Pride of Carthage, the superb fictional rendering of Hannibal's epic military campaigns against Carthage's archenemy Rome, comes the perfect follow-up: an equally superb novel of the legendary gladiator Spartacus and the vast slave revolt he led that came ever so close to bringing Rome and its supposedly invincible legions to its knees. No one brings more verve, intelligence, and freshness to the perennially commercial sword-and-sandals genre than David Anthony Durham. "David Anthony Durham has serious chops. I can't wait to read whatever he writes next."--George R.R. Martin"--

Hannibal : pride of Carthage by David Anthony Durham( Book )

3 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In ancient Rome, parents used to silence misbehaving children with the utterance 'Hannibal ad portas' (Hannibal is at the door). Such was the fear and awe that Hannibal Barca instilled. This is the story of one of the ancient world's most remarkable figures and the long, bloody conflict between the two 'superpowers' of the times - the Second Punic War (218-202BC) - that hinged on the genius, the ambition and the personal tragedies of Hannibal Barca of Carthage, whose military prowess became the stuff of legend, and Publius Scipio of Rome. History, of course, tells us the outcome: that Rome would be the victor, surviving to become a colossal imperial power, while Carthage would be all but erased from history. It was, however, a close run thing. And the world might have been a very different place had Hannibal succeeded in thwarting the might of Rome
