How the Punic wars started...
We'll just have to conquer Carthage too!
Let's expand our empire through trade and conquest!
Good thing that the last Etruscan king has been overthrown!
Well, Carthage is blocking our access to the Mediterranean Sea.

I am Scipio the Roman general and WE HAVE GAINED CONTROL OF SICILY!!
We're one step closer to an even more awesome empire!

Hannibal- Carthaginian general
We should also be sure to avoid attacks. Let's ride elephants!
We need to take back something... the Italian peninsula! There will be snow storms and landslides, but we will persevere!
The second Punic war: 218-201 BCE
I will have to return to Carthage to defend our land from the filthy Romans!
Riding on elephants was such a good idea, I think that the invasion went pretty well. The Romans were so surprised when we marched from Spain across the Alps into Italy!
Hannibal is such a great general. The attacks from local tribes weren't ideal though...
Location: Italian Peninsula

Carthage ended up having to give Spain and money to Rome.but...50 years of peace occurred
