Abstract:

"The Punic Wars triggered an era of astonishing human misfortune. Resulting from a mighty power struggle between the military confederation of Rome and the trading empire of Carthage between 264-241 B.C., 218-201 B.C., and 149-146 B.C., the wars were fought over a period of 118 years. Massive manmade devastation on both sides left Rome's population radically depleted and Carthage razed and erased from the map." "Sir Nigel Bagnall brings his military experience and a modern professional eye to bear in analyzing the Punic Wars. He marshals classic military strategists such as Livy, Polybius, and Diodoerus to plot the wars' campaigns in Spain, Africa, Sicily, and the Pelopponnese, and follows Hannibal's daring but unsuccessful strike into the heart of Italy."--BOOK JACKET.
