On August 2, 216 BC, in the Italian town of Cannae, Hannibal won his greatest victory against the Romans-and for centuries after, it became a perfectly executed model that generals everywhere drew on. Using primary sources and brilliant images, Goldsworthy tells the story of this epic confrontation and its devastating tactics. "An excellent addition to scholarship on the Second Punic War... Lavishly illustrated, engagingly written [it] will appeal to readers at all levels."-Choice.
