Senate, give me men so i can attack Hannibal and Carthage!
Scipio meets Hannibal
Your so dead Hannibal!
Carthage led by Hannibal versus Scipio of Rome. In the last decisive battle of the Second Punic War.
You boys are dead!
This battle led to the end of Hannibal's command of the Carthaginian army and put Carthage out of Rome's league in terms of empires.
Don't worry my friends. I will be your shield!
I've heard that reference before.
The battle took place at Naraggara, where Scipio's and Hannibal's armies met each other, with Hannibal's army having 36000 men and Scipio army having 23000.
Oh look, I won!
The battle of Zama was a strategical hell, with Hannibal letting his elephants charge head in, but Scipio trained his army to let the elephants run through channels and kill them later. Scipio's cavalry charge in attacking Hannibal's cavalry. Hannibal's cavalry flees, with Scipio's cavalry behind. The bloodbath begins.
Both armies only have their infantry left. The battle keeps going, but after some hours of fighting, Scipio's cavalry becomes aware that Hannibal's cavalry is trying to distract them. They come back and attack Hannibal's infantry from behind. The balance shifts, in a team effort, Scipio's army eliminates Hannibal's army.
After Carthage's defeat, they were dealt with harsh punishments, and one of them was requiring permission from Rome to wage war. Carthage's territory around Naraggara was also given to Rome.
