Punic Wars by Nigel Bagnall
Book DescriptionThe Punic Wars (264-146BC) sprang from a mighty power struggle between two ancient civilisations - the trading empire of Carthage and the military confedoration of Rome. It was a period of astonishing human misfortune, lasting over a period of 118 years and resulting in the radical depletion of Rome's population and resources and the complete annihilation of Carthage. All this took place more than 2,000 years ago, yet, as Nigel Bagnall's comprehensive history demonstrates, the ancient conflict is remarkable for its contemporary revelance.

UK Kirkus Review » A stirring tale, well told by an author with a distinguished military career to inform him. The Punic Wars of 264-146BC haunted the Romans and have fascinated people ever since. The clash of expansionist powers made terrible demands on both sides before Rome achieved ultimate victory and was set on her road to controlling the entire known world. Though Hannibal's feat with the elephants resonates most keenly, Bagnell's campaign-by-campaign analysis seeks to show that this desperate, long-lasting conflict offers practical and political lessons that still have relevance. It makes a gripping piece of military history. (Kirkus UK)
