The Second Punic War was like a "Known World War II." There were people and places involved all over the Mediterranean. There is a lot of great history that I had to leave out when writing this novel. To have covered the entire Second Punic War from start to finish would have added hundreds of characters and three times as many pages. I've put a few notes on this site to supplement the book. I plan to add and expand on these notes from time to time. I hope you find this information both useful and entertaining.
