The Third Punic War v2.0
From Scenario League Wiki
Following the death of Cato the elder, a famous Roman speaker, who is known for having ended all his speeches with the sentence "Ceterum Censo Carthaginem esse delendam" (Also, I think Carthage must be destroyed), the Romans decided to destroy Carthage completely.
This war was the third in a series of terrible, long and bloody wars, which all ended to the profit of Rome -which they had barely achieved towards the end, always-. The first and the second "Punic Wars" both lasted over 2 decades, and marked the beginning of some stunning conquests that should change earth's history.
Famous characters, such as Cornelius Scipio, Philipp V, Hieron II, Archimedes and Hannibal flourished during this time.
The Romans conquered Hispania (Spain), Sicily, all of Italy, Corsica, Sardinia and Africa (during Antiquity, Africa was the term used to describe modern-day Tunisia and a part of Algeria), and made themselves superior power in the world.
As mentioned above, the 3rd Punic War was triggered by the death of Cato the Elder, but resulted from a long trade and economy embargo that the Romans had set. During the first two years, the Carthaginians fought well, being highly motivated and successfully defended their lands. The tide turned however, after C. Laelius and Scipio the younger along with their Invasion forces landed on the African soil.
Two times before, the African ground was soaked with Roman blood, and both times, the invasion was unsuccessful. But not this time. The Romans met exhausted troops, and quickly managed to defeat them.
