Description
On August 2, 216 BC, Hannibal confronted a Roman army of 86,000 men on the narrow plain north of the hilltop town of Cannae in southern Italy. His Carthaginian mercenariesóSpaniards, Gauls, Libyans, and Numidiansówere experienced, confident, and well led, but they were also outnumbered nearly two to one. Yet after a single day of brutal fighting, the Carthaginians had virtually annihilated the Romans. Described here in eyewitness detail and illustrated in color and black and white art, photos, and maps, Hannibal's perfectly executed battle has become the model for countless generals, including von Schlieffen, Rommel, and Norman Swartzkopf, who wrote, "I learned many things from the Battle of Cannae which I applied to Desert Storm."
