Customer Review

on 23 March 2009
The Fall of Carthage is a very good book by Adrian Goldsworthy dealing with the three Punic Wars between Carthage and Rome. It is well written although to begin with it doesn't really flow as well as it does later. The book itself deals with the only really major threat to the rise of Rome after they had established mastery of the Italian Peninsula but also shows how the contest although at times a hard fought and close run contest was always likely to turn Rome's way due not only to the respective strengths of their militaries but also the fact that the Roman way of war was uniquely different to anything Carthage or for that matter any of the Mediterranean states had faced before. All in all a very good book which gets better as you get into it.
