including Hannibal's final defeat by Scipio at Zama, the conclusion of
peace and Scipio's triumphal return to Rome.This useful edition
of the Latin text, reissued after being unavailable for some time,
includes an introduction giving background on Livy and his work, Rome
and Carthage, the Punic Wars, the African campaign, the Roman army and
Scipio's tactics. There are copious notes on the text, an appendix on
chronology, an index of proper names and a vocabulary.
