  • The first Punic war
  • We want Sicily!
  • No WE want Sicily!
  • Rome won the first Punic war!
  • We won so pay us
  • Fine
  • The second Punic war
  • We have come to battle...again
  • The Punic wars started when both Carthage and Rome wanted the territory of Sicily. The war was LONG and lasted about 20 years!. About 60,000 soldiers were in the battle, and about 6,000 horses helping the soldier. And the coolest thing is that there were almost 37 elephants were helping the soldiers!
  • Carthage lost the war.. again
  • After 20 years of battling the Romans won the war. The Romans won mostly because of their tactic skills and their amazing organization. When the Carthaginians lost the war they were forced to leave Sicily and they also had to pay a huge fine. The Carthaginians needed another territory to trade, welcome to the 2nd Punic war.
  • The third Punic war
  • Here we are in the second Punic war, now the Carthaginians didn't give up they thought they were going to win the 2nd war..but they didn't. The Romans had so many advantages, they used elephants for stomping on enemy's, they also had ships with hooks on the end to break their enemy's ships. For this war Rome and Carthage battled for the territory of Spain.
  • The last Punic war and Carthage STILL lost!
  • Again Carthage didn't win and they had to give up Spain as well as pay a huge fine again. The 2nd Punic war killed at least 300 soldiers, but again Carthage didn't know when to quit so here comes the 3rd Punic war.
  • Oh no Carthage tried to win the third Punic war and it didn't go so well. The 3rd Punic war only lasted 3 years and now only 30,00 soldiers were fighting... I know... big difference, what wasn't a difference though was that Carthage lost the 3rd Punic war... again.
  • We have come to redeem ourselves
  • After the 3rd loss by Carthage the Romans got a little bit more harsh.The Romans enslaved all of the Carthaginians, made the Carthaginians pay a huge fine, and went to Carthage to sprinkle salt on their crops so the crops couldn't grow anymore. After that there was never a Punic war again.
  • Don't enslave us!
  • Enslave them!
  • Our crops!
  • Noooo
