Product description

Few battles in history have been as decisive and have held such an enduring fascination for both historians and generals as that of Cannae, the culmination of Hannibal's lengthy campaigns against Rome. In this special edition, a revised compilation of two of Osprey's most successful titles, Men-at-Arms 121 Armies of the Carthaginian Wars and Campaign 36 Cannae 216 BC, two eminent scholars of the Classical world -- Terence Wise and Mark Healy -- describe in detail the makeup of Hannibal's army, and the course of his epic campaigns from their base in Spain, the incredible crossing of the Alps and his campaigns in Italy.
