An impressive historian of Roman warfare--highly praised by John Keegan--has written a thoroughly engrossing account of antiquity's greatest conflict. In the struggle for supremacy between Rome and Carthage, both sides suffered casualties exceeding that of any war fought before the modern era. Told in grand narrative style, following the fighting on land and sea, the terrible pitched battles, and such generals as Hannibal and Scipio Aemilianus who finally drove Carthage into the ground.
