Rome wins this naval war with smarts! They manage to board the enemy ships and fight the battles on board. They ultimately gain control of Sicily and other Western European islands.
Which means that we can hijack their ships!
I just heard that our ships got manned with giant hooks !
The First Punic War 264 B.C - 241 B.C
Ha, looks like we're beating the Carthaginians at their own game!
Carthaginian General Hannibal leads a surprise attack through the Alps, successfully invading Italy from the north. He doesn't go for Rome, however, because their defenses are far stronger.
Those Romans will never know what hit them! Onward!
The Second Punic War 219 B.C - 201 B.C
I know we've lost some men, but we must keep going!
The Romans sail to North Africa to conquer Carthage. Hannibal and his army are forced to turn back and protect their city. The Romans defeat them in battle, winning Spain and Carthage.
The Second Punic War (cont.) 219 B.C - 201 B.C
General Scipio has studied every one of Hannibal's strategies!
Let's hope so! Carthage owns territory in Spain, so this would be a big win for us.
They don't stand a chance!
Carthage was left defenseless after the previous war, but Rome wanted to make sure they could never become a threat again. So, they declared war, and completely destroyed the city.
MAY ROME TRIUMPH!
BURN IT DOWN!
WE ARE A FORCE TO BE RECKONED WITH!
The Third Punic War 149 B.C - 146 B.C
EFFECTS Rome - The empire stretched much farther, now dominating essentially the whole "known" world - The use of slaves was increased Carthage - The city was pretty much wiped out of existence ; they lost everything
