Darkness over Cannae on Indiegogo! by Gold-Seven Darkness over Cannae on Indiegogo! by Gold-Seven
Darkness over Cannae is happening - and you can help! 

144 pages. 77 illustrations. 86,000 legionaries. 50,000 Celts, Spaniards, and Africans. One goal: To get this out there!

Please head over to Indiegogo igg.me/at/cannae and check out the crowdfunding campaign, and whether you decide to contribute to the project or just spread the word via social media, get the word out - I'll be so grateful! 

A few words about the project:
For half a year now, I've been working on an illustrated novel titled "Darkness over Cannae". It depicts a single day in 216 BC, the 2nd of August in Apulia, the day eight Roman legions were smashed by the military genius of Hannibal Barca. We see this day through the eyes of seven people fighting on that plain - three Romans and four Carthaginians - at different points of the battle, and all with their different outlooks and experiences in a pivotal day in all of their lives. 

Coming late 2014 - Darkness over Cannae. 

Preorder the book. Support the campaign. Be part of the project!

Dang, missed the campaign. Will this be available to others who did not fund the indegogo campaign? It looks AMAZING, by the way.

Excellent, I'll keep an eye out on the site. Dan Carlin did an episode on his Hardcore History podcast about Hannibal and he paints a picture with words that all these images seem to match exactly. I recommend this episode to anyone interested in the subject. It's just as mesmerizing as your paintings. I can't wait to read this book while listening to the podcast again!

How very exciting! I'm so happy for you that this is happening, and with such enthusiasm from the masses! I don't know if I can contribute, but I've a few days yet to mull it over. :hug: Congrats again.

Well, damn - not sure I'll be able to chip in before the campaign ends! But I definitely know what I'm going to give my "little" brother for his birthday in November... or for Christmas at the latest! (He's a history teacher-in-training. He's going to get SUCH a kick out of this! :D)

Awww, bitte! Wobei du ja sowieso ganz viele Unterstützer hattest und es auf meine traurigen Kröten nicht mehr ankam. (Aber ich wollte doch noch schnell signierte Ausgaben für mich und mein Brüderlein abstauben ;)!)
