Overview

The Battle of Zama was the decisive battle of the Second Punic War, a war fought between Rome and Carthage in the Third Century AD. The war itself pitted two fierce rivals who vied for supremacy in the Mediterranean.

A Roman victory on this day would do more then simply bring an end to a long war; it would completely destroy a fierce enemy and would be the first step on its path towards making Rome an empire.

For Carthage, nothing less then its own survival was at stake. Victory would expel a foreign force from its soil and could lead to renewed action against the Romans. A loss would almost certainly mean utter destruction for the once great city state.

James K. Wheaton takes takes you inside the epic battle to tell you about the leaders, the tactics, strategy involved.

A short and uninteresting pamphlet on the Punic wars. Not worth reading
