On August 2, 216 BC, in the Italian town of Cannae, Hannibal won his greatest victory. In one of the bloodiest battles ever, his outnumbered mercenaries massacred the greater part of Romes large army.

In one of the bloodiest battles ever, his outnumbered mercenaries massacred the greater part of Romes large army.

For the Romans, Cannae became the yardstick against which all other defeats were measured- for generals centuries after, it became a perfectly executed model to draw on. Using primary sources and brilliant images, Goldsworthy tells the story of this epic confrontation and its devastating tactics.
