DESTROY CARTHAGE: free chapter preview

Exciting news - my publishers have just released a free online preview of my novel Total War Rome: Destroy Carthage in advance of hardback publication of the book in the UK and the US on 3 September, the same day that Sega release the game Total War: ROME II. Click on the image below to read the chapter-length Prologue, set during the Battle of Pydna in 168 BC when Rome finally defeated Macedonia and opened the way for conquest of Greece and the East. I hope you enjoy it!

More than 100,000 hard copies of the Prologue have also been distributed as bound samplers. Visit to find out more about the game and the Collector's Edition. Check out my next blog for another small excerpt from the novel, and my book page Total War Rome: Destroy Carthage for reviews and more.
