In this Punic War the Romans are winning!
The first Punic War was caused by Rome and Carthage. It was fought mainly at sea.
The first Punic War itself was caused when "pirates" requested help from Carthage and after they did they soon didn't want to submit to the Carthage's rule. The "pirates" decided to appeal to Rome and Rome helps them and goes to war against Carthage.
The significance of the fact that the Romans were winning was that this was their first naval fight and first fight outside of Italy.
The First Punic War ended with the Carthaginians agreeing to withdraw all their claims to Sicily. But the Romans acted in foul play by revolting with their mercenaries to annex Corsica and Sardinia while Carthage was in temporary preoccupation.
Carthage fought back by using the Spanish campaign led by Hamilcar, Hasdrubal, and Hannibal and was successful
The Second Punic War started with a fight over the Ebro River border. Hannibal remembers the oath he swore to hate Rome for his father, Hamilcar, and attacks Rome. He does this by first doing the impossible, crossing the Alps.
They were successful at reaching Italy but lost at least 72,000 people. However instead of getting Rome Hannibal offers them peace terms.
For the Third and final Punic War the Romans beat the Carthaginians in Africa.
