In 216 BC, at Cannae, the genius of Hannibal Barca was matched against the raw power of Rome's legions. 120,000 men would take part in this colossal clash of titans and make it one of the most studied and emulated battles of antiquity. We will start by setting the stage on which the following drama will be set!
"The Ghosts of Cannae" by Robert L. O'Connell
"The Fall of Carthage" by Adrian Goldsworthy
"In the Name of Rome" by Adrian Goldsworthy
"Soldiers and Ghosts" by J. E. Lendon
