Format: Hardcover
This book gives a very solid account of the punic wars, from beginning to end. I was impressed by the attention to detail. The only flaw lies in the intrinsic difficulty that lies in according the numerous names and places with each other. It is hard to keep up..but that is partially due to history itself. After having read the book, I feel the I am reasonably versed in Punic and Roman history and geography. I recommend this book for any history buff.

By Richard I. Pervo on May 8, 2013
Format: Hardcover
This is a readable, "objective," and comprehensive history of these wars, so important for Western history. C. enables readers to see strengths and weaknesses of Rome. The people endured terrible casualties for decades in two wars. Soldiers were tough, but leaders were incompetent. suspicion of strong men meant that each year both consuls would get a fresh army. few had much experience. Defeating Carthage meant the development of professional generals, a threat to the Republic.
Roman aristocrats still pursued these offices--until the sixth century C. E.--but they lost most of their power. These wars show how Rome more or less had to become an empire, or perish.
