Ep. 163: Hannibal, Pt. 2 – Shades of My Foully Murdered Countrymen

Spread the love

Welcome back to the dusty horrors of ancient warfare, in part 2 of our rapidly expanding series (well, to 3 episodes, anyway) on Hannibal and the Second Punic War!

It’s 218 BC, and Hannibal just marched a whole army across the Alps to surprise the Romans in Italy. The next move is Rome’s, and they’ve got all the wrong ones. We step into the shoes of Roman infantry as tens of thousands of our buddies are slaughtered on the field at the Trebia and Lake Trasimene, before Fabius the Delayer steps in to make things way more safe and boring.

But don’t worry – Rome’s boldest moves, and most abject horrors, are still to come. Also, Hannibal marches 50,000 more guys through a marsh full of poop.
