Total War History: The First Punic War (Part 1/4)
Few conflicts have rivaled the scale and destruction of the Punic wars fought between Rome and Carthage. In this first episode I set the stage for a conflict that will reshape history!

Huh. I can't believe i just found this now.
I don't know how, in this (late stage) of the Golden age of television with prestige big-budget series like Game of Thrones, and movie series like Lord of the rings, how the Punic Wars have seem to be overlooked as subject matter for a series or films. It's already broken up for 4 or 5 seasons; 1 for the First, 2 for the Second and 1 or 2 for the third. You have characters like Hannibal, Scipio Africanus, Scipio Aemilianus, Fabius Maximus. And moments like the Cannae, Lake Trasimene, crossing the Alps, Cams and etc. It practically writes itself.
Plus that fact that it happened so long ago, and with most of the subject being all but unknown, save for a relatively small segment of people who study or are interested in Antiquity; the story is just made to be able to throw in fictional storylines that allow a creator and writer to make it into something that will grab the attention of the average TV and film viewer.
You completely bumble fucked through that part about Carthage at Messana.
Pyrrhus wasn’t defeated, he defeated rome twice and than carthaginians, carthaginians paid him too, but greek cities didn’t support him and didn’t consider him Greece and so he decided to go back in epirus, but rome for revenge attached him when he was passing in apulia with his army…
Phyrus was a great tactician but a horrible strategist. He could win his battles but not a lead a campaign.
