Description - Cannae by Adrian Goldsworthy

This work takes a close look at one of the most influential battles of Antiquity. On 2 August 216BC, Hannibal won his greatest victory in Cannae in southern Italy. For the Romans, Cannae became the yardstick by which other defeats were measured, never surpassed and only once or twice equalled in the next six centuries. Cannae remains one of the most famous battles ever fought, frequently alluded to in modern military writing, and Hannibal's tactics are still taught in the military academies where today's officers are trained. This volume takes a look at the battle, and explains exactly how it was that Hannibal achieved his historic victory.
