The First Punic War left Carthage humiliated: they lost their territory, their gold, several armies, and turned to crucifying their own generals in anger. Once a powerful trading city, Carthage now had no money to pay their mercenaries. The mercenaries revolted, starting a new incredibly brutal war. While they were busy fighting their former soldiers, Rome took even more Carthaginian land than Carthage had already ceded in their peace treaty.
Twenty-three years later, the son of Carthage’s greatest general is ready to take revenge. With an army of 100,000 men and 37 elephants, Hannibal Barca is marching to do battle and turn Rome’s own might against itself.
