    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

    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!
