The Carthaginians are well known as Rome's great enemy of the three Punic wars and Hannibal, their greatest general, is a household name. While narrative histories of the Punic wars (especially the second) and biographies of Hannibal abound, there have been few studies dedicated to detailed analysis of Carthaginian armies and warfare throughout the city-state's entire existence. Joshua Hall puts that right with this in-depth study of their tactics, equipment, unit organization, army composition and operational effectiveness. Discussion of Carthage's navy is also included. A section on naval warfare is also included. Importantly, while the Second Punic War is rightly given prominence, this is not at the expense of the many earlier wars Carthage waged as she built and then defended her empire. Drawing on all the available archaeological and literary evidence, the author shows the development of Carthage's forces and methods of warfare from the ninth century BC to the city's demise. The result is the most in-depth portrait of the Carthaginian military available in English.

Opening with an informative General Introduction, "Carthage at War: Punic Armies c. 814-146 BC" is enhanced for scholars with the inclusion of an eleven page Bibliography, fifty-two pages of Notes, and a seven page Index. A seminal study of rigorous, meticulous, exceptional research, "Carthage at War: Punic Armies c. 814-146 BC" must be regarded as a core and critically important addition to personal, professional, community, and academic library Roman/Carthaginian Military History collections and supplemental curriculum studies lists. Impressively written, organized and presented, it should also be noted that "Carthage at War: Punic Armies c. 814-146 BC" is also readily available to students, academia, and non-specialist general readers with an interest in the subject in a digital book format.
