The Romans won the war against Carthage by hooking onto enemy ships, pulling them in, and then attacked them on the deck. Rome gained control over Sicily and other Western European islands!
We're going to win, ok?! We are not going to lose this time!!
We just have to smart this time! And I have a plan...
Hannibal lead his army through the mountains, and defeated Rome in a number of battles. It had gotten to the point where some of Rome's allies in the south took Hannibal's side in the war.
Punic War 2 (A) 219-201 BCE
Then we won't have a choice but to take his side...
Hannibal is on his way here!
Too many lives are at stake...
Patrician General Scipio Aemilius sailed his army across the Mediterranean, and landed in North Africa. He then headed towards Carthage, which forced Hannibal to leave Italy to protect Carthage. Hannibal was defeated, and Rome gained Carthage's army, Spain, and 10,000 Silver Talents.
Punic War 2 (B) 219-201 BCE
Get ready to fight, men!
Scipio told us to head for Carthage and force Hannibal to surrender!
Punic War 3 149-146 BCE
Rome had become sick and tired of Cato's efforts, so Rome declared war on Carthage and won easily. Rome ended up gaining Carthage itself: the entire population of Carthage was sold to slavery, property was burned down, and everything of value was carried back to Rome.
Ugh... him again...?
You know what? If he wants war, then it's war he will get!
Cato is at it again... what should we do this time?
