Ancient Rome Anthology
Disc 2DVD - 2012
The battle for power continues...Watch Carthaginian general Hannibal inflict one of the greatest defeats ever on the forces of Rome. With troops numbering far less than the Roman army's eight legions, Hannibal nonetheless manages a double envelopment of the Roman forces to kill them all. And Crassus may have been the richest man in Rome, but he was the poor relation in the First Triumvirate. His vanity cost him the lives of seven legions, his son, and his own head. And in the farthest flung province of the Roman Empire, Britain, a warrior queen named Boudicca leads one of the most violent rebellions against Roman domination in British history. And last, but certainly not least, witness the classic conflict between two dominant military systems of the Ancient World. On one side, the Macedonian phalanx, the fighting force that conquered the world under Alexander the Great, and on the other, the Roman Legion, the unit that was to hold the Pax Romana for hundreds of years. -- cover.
