Right! First book competition of the year and it starts off with a cracker that deals with the bloodbath that was the Battle of Cannae in 216 BC, where Hannibal gives the Romans a bit of a spanking. The book is Fields of Blood : you can read the review here: Fields of Blood



The competition is as ever, found on Survey Monkey: Here Entry Form

Competition will run until Sunday 26[SUP]th[/SUP] January 2014. 5 paperback copies are up for grabs.

Yes....done. Been to Cannae....brilliant. Can't smell the dead but the stench of the wine grape is amazing!

Had a go, my luck has to change on the book comp some time!! I nearly bought this for my Kindle last week, but opted for the new Simon Scarrow one instead.

Winners & Answers

Well that is comp #1 for 2014 finished and the winners are as below. I will email them for their details as per usual.

A couple of weel ken't names there so to get rid of them it will probably take more entrants in future competitions!! :cool:

The winners are - and well done to them:


  • tiddlyoggy
  • greyncrusty
  • cutaway
  • janner
  • davidbetts

A bit superfluous to give the answers as we had a 100% correct response - I will obviously have to try harder and can only blame the slackness on post Festive overload!

Q1 - Cannae is in Southern Italy

Q2 - A Hastae is a Thrusting Spear

Q3 - Cannae took place during the Second Punic War

Well done to all who took part, and to those who didn't, just goes to show how easy it is!

Still looking for davidbetts to claim his book.

If not claimed in the next few days it goes to the next on the winners' list.
