Just that blurb makes me question the historical accuracy of this title.

"By the end of the First Punic War, the Romans had reduced the capital city of the Carthaginian Empire to a heap of ashes and destroyed its culture."

Really? Surely they mean the THIRD Punic War, but then the structure of the paragraph makes no sense.

Bad copy. The book itself may be well written and researched, but that's the not the impression I get from this brief summary.

"Wheres Allen hiding?"

Judging by the ignorance displayed in that write up, that may be a rhetorical question.

Lying down. Weeping.

If you needed proof that they're morons at Osprey, here it is.

The Roman bombing of Carthage, using the flying vessel Enolus Gaius, ended the First Punic War. It's in all the books.

Well, this book.

my comments were deleted by Osprey's demand. perhaps Curtis's remarks need to be stricken as well.

From the link above:
"Being a marketing bod myself, I still maintain that this was a wildly successful viral campaign to get people talking about the book. But then I would. After all, I'm a marketing bod…"

Good save. : )
