At Zama in what is now Tunisia in 202 BC the armies of two empires clashed. The Romans under Scipio Africanus won a bloody, decisive victory over Hannibal’s Carthaginians. Scipio’s victory signalled a shift in the balance of power in the ancient world. Brian Todd Carey’s compelling reconstruction of the battle, and of the gruelling war that led up to it, gives a fascinating insight into the Carthaginian and Roman methods of waging war. And it offers a critical assessment of the contrasting qualities and leadership styles of Hannibal and Scipio, the two most celebrated commanders of their age. BRIAN TODD CAREY is profesor of history and military studies at the American Public University System and is the author of over a dozen articles on ancient and medieval military history and air power in the Second World War. He has served as vice president of the Rocky Mountain World History Association and on the Asian Studies Board at Colorado State University. His first two books, Warfare in the Ancient World and Warfare in the Medieval World cover the history of warfare in western civilisation from the Bronze Age to the Thirty Year War.
