I just wanted to drop a note for those that might be interested. I
just finished reading, "A Greater than Napoleon - Scipio Africanus" by
B.H. Liddell Hart (ISBN 8196-0269-8). This book was originally
published in 1927 and is perhaps the best "insight" into the mind and
method of Scipio that I have ever read.
While the book falls decidedly short on some of Scipio's greatest
contributions to the Roman military system, it is a superb biography
of the man, his mind, and his method.
I highly recommend it.
