ROME VERSUS CARTHAGE The War at Sea

ROME VERSUS CARTHAGE
The War at Sea 
The Punic Wars - the long and epic struggle between Rome and Carthage - are best known for Hannibal's land battles. This absorbing study, by contrast, focuses on the naval warfare between the two Mediterranean rivals. Using new archaeological evidence, author Christa Steinby shows how Roman resourcefulness and skill finally won the day.
The Punic Wars - the epic struggle between Carthage and Rome, two of the superpowers of the ancient world, - are most famous for Hannibal's land battles in Italy, and struggles on the Iberian peninsula and North Africa. But warfare at sea, which played a vital role in the First and Second Punic Wars, rarely receives the attention it deserves. And it is the monumental clashes of the Carthaginian and Roman fleets in the Mediterranean that are the focus of Christa Steinby's absorbing study. She exploits new evidence, including the latest archaeological discoveries, looks afresh at the ancient sources, and quotes extensively from them. In particular she shows how the Romans' seafaring tradition and their skill, determination and resourcefulness eventually gave them a decisive advantage. In doing so, she overturns the myths and misunderstandings that have tend to distort our understanding of Roman naval warfare.
