Great Battles of the Ancient World - Peter Harrison - Virgin Books, - Cover.   Total War Rome: Destroy Carthage is an interesting beast, being both a historical novel and a promotional tie-in to SEGA's hit real time strategy game Total War: Rome 2, of which I am definitely a fan (having racked up about 70 hours of playing time so far, and hundreds more on other titles in the Total War series)/5. The Roman Empire was the greatest the world has ever seen, and its legendary military might was the foundation of this success.
