Customer Review

on 11 January 2008
Carey presents a well-researched and very readable account of the epic military struggle between ancient Rome and Carthage known to history as the Punic Wars. The author breathes life into the ancient historical accounts of Polybius and Livy and supplements his concise narrative with great tactical maps, setting it a part from British Field Marshal Bagnall's book. As the title suggests, the strength of this book is the reconstruction of the Battle of Zama in 202, complete with an eleven map reconstruction of this important engagement. Although lean on political history, this book is a fine introduction to how the Romans and Carthaginians waged Europe's first "Great War".
