The Second Punic War
May 5, 2004
Perhaps the most important series of events in the history of Rome, the Second Punic War marked the maturation of Rome into both a survivor and a world power. Under the command of the Hannibal Barca, the Carthaginians gave the Romans all they could handle. The Outbreak of the Second Punic War illustrates the very beginning of Hannibal’s risky and brilliant march to the Alps.
Due to the scope and importance of the events, the Second Punic War will be broken down into several pages rather than a single overview chapter.
