    Scipio Africanus - Rome’s George Washington Well done historical fiction account of the life of Scipio Africanus (Publius Scipio the Younger). This is a great starting point if you are new to Africanus, albeit very brief. if you are familiar with his story, and wanted great detail (for instance the Battle of Zama was less than 20 pages) thoe os a good refresher.
