Summary

Despite the popularity of the Punic Wars as a subject and of Hannibal as an individual, the Carthaginian army has remained an ignored topic. This book sets out to redress the balance. It brings together for the first time a range of evidence, which not only outlines the history of the Carthaginian army during the period of the Punic Wars but which also describes the organisation and equipment of the army. The evidence is also used to place Carthage's army in the context of the period and to address the question of how it matched up to other Hellenistic armies.

Author Biography
