GJ’s Next Historical Novel:
Award-winning author G. J. Berger’s second historical novel, “Four Nails”.
School children in many lands have heard of Hannibal, the general out of Carthage who took an army and elephants over the Alps and down the back side of his mortal enemy, Rome. Author GJ Berger transports the reader into the heart and mind of Hannibal’s lead elephant driver and into the spirit of his magnificent elephant. As with Berger’s debut historical fiction novel, “South of Burnt Rocks West of The Moon”, the places, tides of history, and main encounters in “Four Nails” are all true, laced with rich details from a life-time of research into an engrossing and deeply satisfying story previously lost to the fog of history.
“Epic historical fiction….A highly entertaining, sophisticated look at the Second Punic War through the eyes of an unlikely hero.” Kirkus Review, Nov. 15, 2013.
