Second Punic war [219-202BC]

The Second Punic War was fought between the Romans and the Carthaginians between 218 and 201 BC. The Carthaginian warlord Hannibal of the Barkas family first gave Rome a series of defeats in tactically ingenious battles, which are still featured in military textbooks. Subsequently, the Romans went into a several-year-long wear-and-tear war, gradually eliminating or neutralizing the allies and major colonies of Carthage, and finally, under the leadership of Publius Cornelius Scipio Africanus, won the Battle of Zamy. This war finally decided the struggle of both cities to dominate the Mediterranean in favour of Rome.
