Product description

This volume offers an account of the origins, events and outcome of the Battle of Cannae in 216 BC, the most famous battle of the Second Punic War, during which Hannibal's much smaller force inflicted the greatest defeat ever suffered by the Roman army in what is still regarded today as a model display of military tactics. It is illustrated with detailed maps and diagrams, and with contemporary drawings and prints.
