The Punic Wars 264-146 BC, Paperback / softback Book

The Punic Wars 264-146 BC Paperback / softback

Part of the Essential Histories series


The three Punic Wars lasted nearly 100 years, from 264 BC to 146 BC.

They represented a struggle for supremacy in the Mediterranean between the bludgeoning land power of Rome, bent on imperial conquest, and the great maritime power of Carthage with its colonies and trading posts spread around the Mediterranean.

The dramas and tragedies of the Punic Wars exemplify many political and military lessons which are as relevant today as when Hannibal and Scipio Africanus fought to determine the course of history in the Mediterranean.
