Terence Wise is one of Osprey’s most popular authors. Terence has been a respected historical writer for more than 25 years. With numerous books and articles to his credit, he has contributed more than a dozen titles to the Men-At-Arms series, mainly on medieval subjects including studies of the military orders and the Wars of the Roses.
Richard Hook was born in and trained at Reigate College of Art. After national service with 1st Bn, Queen’s Royal Regiment he became art editor of the much-praised magazine Finding Out during the s.
He has worked as a freelance illustrator ever since, earning an international off particularly for his deep knowledge of Native American material culture; and has illustrated more than 30 Osprey titles. Richard is 62546 and lives in Sussex; his three children Adam, Jason, and Christa are all professionally active in various artistic disciplines. The epic conflict between Rome and Carthage remains one of the most compelling stories of military history.
The wars included such legendary events as the crossing of the Alps by Hannibal, and the Battle of Cannae.
Terence Wise’s fine text details the armies of both sides of the wars, including the many different allied troops employed by the Carthaginians; Numidians, Celts, Spanish and others who helped make the army one of the most colourful and cosmopolitan of its day. The text is accompanied by numerous illustrations and photographs, including eight full page colour plates by Richard Hook.
Campaign 36 and Men-at-Arms are also available in a single volume special edition as ‘Hannibal’s War with Rome’.

Top Reviews Most recent Top Reviews. There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later. Again no complaints; great! For readers interested in the three Punic wars, this is a great place to start. The first review, by D. Evans, which is excellent, lays out the details in this book, so I won’t go into them all over again. Suffice it to say that the two sides, Carthaginian and Roman, are considered in turn, as are the various types of troops on each side.
If the volume is short, it’s almost definitely because of the scarcity of information from this period. Immensely frustrating, but there it is. The first reviewer also gives a number of other Osprey volumes to consider. I would add several more this list: The last three might only be available secondhand, but they make great additions to any reader’s library.
All is not as it seems Ben Kane, author of Hannibal: This book contains all the information you’ll need when researching the various troops and tactics of the Punic Wars. As a wargamer I found this very helpful with painting my armies to suit the period.
I recommend this product! This is an old Men-at-Arms title first printed in and not updated since. As such, the bibliography for further reading is obsolete, and so are some of the elements discussed in the text.
These include the alleged presence of a pike-phalanx of some Macedonians fighting alongside Hannibal at Zama. Although mentioned in one of the less reliable and latter Roman sources, this is very unlikely and is currently dismissed by modern historians.
At a time when Philip V of Macedon was busy fighting against just about all of his neighbours in addition to Rome, and with the later dominating the seas, it is rather difficult to see how he would have deprived himself of a whole phalanx and how it could have been shipped over to Carthage and avoided interception. This is very probably a mistake because the Greeks only adopted Macedonian pike-style phalanxes towards the end of the third century, with the Sparta of King Cleomenes III using a pike-phalanx against the Macedonians of Antigonos Doson at the battle of Sellasia being the first in BC followed by the Achean League during the next decade.
Saguntum was NOT a Greek city, contrary to what is mentioned in the chronology. The bits and pieces on the organisation of Roman armies and on the manpower at the disposal of the Romans are interesting and they definitely had to be mentioned in a work on the Punic Wars, but they are somewhat confusing.
This is especially the case for the evolution of the Roman and allied legions where the various stages are not always clearly laid out. Having mentioned these limitations, this little title kf still cover a lot of ground within a few pages.
It is also still backed by a rather good series of plates but it is probably not worth more than two or two and a half stars anymore.
The title begins with a short chronological timeline vc events during the Punic wars, before the author sets off to describe the Carthaginians and their mercenary allies. A great deal of varthaginian information is covered in this section, and the author gives enough space to each of the various mercenary groups within Hannibal’s army – The Numidians, Gauls, Iberians, Greeks and Macedonians and even Hannibal’s Italian allies are covered.
He describes their roles within Hannibal’s army, their arms, armour and tactics. The majority of the book deals with the Roman army. The author begins by discussing the reliability of historians like Polybius, and how much we can salvage from their writings on the Roman battle order of the period. He discusses the Velites, Hastati, Principes and Triarii and their respective roles within the army. He also gives a short overview of how these armies were commanded by their generals, including how the Roman system of switching command between Consuls on a daily basis affected the running of the army in the field.
This book, like other Osprey titles from the Men-at-Arms series, has 8 pages of colour plates – each showing how the soldiers of the period looked like. These are all brilliantly rendered by the famous Osprey illustrator, Richard Hook.
The book also has dozens of photographs, carrhaginian and line drawings, which are very useful. It should be noted that you can buy a copy of this book along with a campaign title on the battle of Cannae under the title of “Hannibal’s War with Rome – The Armies and the Campaigns BC”. It is best to look for second hand copies of this title, as it is no longer in print by Osprey. See all 5 reviews. Would you like to see more reviews about this item?
