Storyboard Text

  • Many people wonder how the the 1st Punic War started...
  • We're tired of taking over small cities... let's take over Rome!
  • Retired campanian mercenaries take over cities and over time, they want to take over Rome.
  • Rome did not like this at all...they went at war with Carthage, the mercenaries' ally. This war was mostly fought sea and in the end, Rome won, even though this was their 1st naval flight.
  • YAY!
  • *tear*
  • Hamicar Barca, the general for the Carthage, survived the 1st Punic War. His own men revolt, due to not being paid, and Hamicar is forced to defeat them. At this point he hates Rome, and makes his son swear an oath to hate Rome.
  • I swear, father.
  • 2nd Punic War
  • His son, Hannibal, remembers the oath he made, and he attempts to attack Rome by going through the Alps.
  • I must do what my father told me to.
  • The battle was difficult in the cold, harsh environment. The army population went from 96,000 to 26,000 men upon reaching Italy.
  • Attack!!!
  • 3rd Punic War
  • Hannibal was so close to defeating Rome. His one big mistake was offering a peace treaty instead of taking over. In the end, Rome breaks the treaty and defeats Carthage.
