Carthage was a great ancient civilization, which, like Rome, conquered a sizable part of the Mediterranean area. During the second half of the 1st millennium BC, Carthage was the most dangerous enemy of Rome. The climax of the conflict between these two ancient superpowers was the Punic Wars. Most of you probably know that these wars ended in the complete defeat and utter destruction of Carthage. As a result, most of the historical knowledge of Carthage was made available to the world by Roman sources.

According to Roman sources, many of the Libyan infantry soldiers - as a consequence of the first battles against Romans - armed themselves with Roman weapons. Scholars are sometimes doubtful of this, though, as the Roman armament was best suited for the manipular system, not dense hoplite phalanxes. Perhaps this belief originated in the fact that a considerable number of Libyan soldiers possibly dressed as Romans to prepare an ambush at the Battle of Cannae. According to the respectable Ardant du Picq, the disguised Libyan units deceived the center of the Roman forces, flanked and struck them, thus intensifying havoc among the Romans.

Iberians were the heavy infantry. Armed with javelins, long shields and falcatas (short swords), they fought in a phalanx. Italian units from Campania and Sardinia, as well as Gauls, used their own native equipment. Balearic slingers were a deadly-accurate force who could strike their enemies from even 200 meters! And, of course, there were elephants. Hannibal made use of them only a few times (e.g. the Trebbia) because they had mostly died during the crossing through the Alps. But elephants were very dangerous, they could easily break through enemy formations, and they crushed morale. Another important force in the army of Hannibal was the cavalry: Libyan, Iberian Celtic, Hispanic, and others. In many battles they played a very important role and were far superior to the Roman cavalry.

Both civilizations were at peace for a while with their relationship held together by loosely following treaties and agreements. As the two powers expanded their influence in the Mediterranean, it was inevitable that they would clash over control of colonization and trade. The First Punic War was almost entirely isolated to or around Sicily off the coast of Italy. The Second Punic War involved a much larger area with events and battles taking place in North Africa, the greater Mediterranean Sea, Spain, Italian Pennisula, and more. The Third Punic War was a much shorter war compared to the first two and ultimately ended the Roman vs. Carthaginian rivalry, establishing the victorious Roman Republic as the major power in the Mediterranean.

Since Sicily was not on the mainland of Carthage or Rome, most of the fighting took place through naval battles with a few battles on land. The first few events were sieges and blockades of key cities on Sicily like Syracuse and Agrigento circa 264-263 BCE.

From 249-244 BCE, Carthage regains the advantage on sea winning several battles and Hamilcar Barca, the father of the famed Hannibal, led successful raids into Southern Italy and eventually landed his army on Sicily to bolster their hold on the Island.

Rome had a booming economy back on their mainland and it proved too much for Carthage. Rome was able to rebuild their fleets and armies quicker and eventually achieved ultimate victory after several significant naval battles between the years of 242-241 BCE putting an end to the First Punic War when Carthage sues for peace. Hamilcar Barca surrendered his army and ordered all Carthaginian troops out of Sicily.

After about 20 years of peace, tensions were once again be tested as Carthage and Rome looked to expand. The Second Punic War was on a larger scale with more battles than the First Punic War. Beginning in 218 BCE and finishing in 201 BCE, the war was fought on three main fronts: Italy, Iberia (modern Spain and Portugal), and North Africa with a few conflicts spread to Greece, Sardinia, Sicily, and other Mediterranean islands.

Hannibal continued to destroy the Roman countryside and recruited Italian tribes to his cause. Finally, Rome sent a large army to aggressively pursue Hannibal. This led to the Battle of Canea and was the most devastating defeat in Roman Military history, losing more than 65,000 troops. Hannibal remained in Southern Italy for over a decade capturing cities then having them defect or besieged by the Roman army. It was difficult for supplies and reinforcements to reach Hannibal so his army had to survive off the land and cities in hostile territory. The Romans were also leading some successful battles in Iberia threatening the Carthaginian colonies there, forcing Carthage to reallocate resources to that front. Rome was also able to achieve naval victories and secured ports throughout the Mediterranean islands and in Greece.

The Romans forced a peace treaty to eliminate all Carthage's overseas holdings and limited their territory to just North Africa. Not only did they lose land, but they also had to pay a great amount of silver and give hostages to Rome. Carthage also could not raise a large army, could not raise a large navy, could no longer deploy war elephants, and needed Rome's approval before going to war if needed. This treaty forced Carthage into a subservient political state of Rome.

The Roman Army landed in North Africa in 149 BCE and set up their siege of Carthage after many failed attempts to breach the city walls. The Romans were constantly harrassed by Carthaginians raiding their camps, burning their ships and supplies, and other tactics used to delay or even make the Roman Army quit. Not many pitched battles were fought during this time period.
