The Punic Wars
The Punic Wars were a series of three conflicts involving the Roman Republic and the Empire of Carthage from 264 BCE until 146 BCE. For over a century the Romans and the Carthaginians jostled to control the seas and the lands of the Italian peninsula, Sicily, northern Africa and the southern lands of Spain.
