Description:

Fought with Carthagen over Sicily. The battles were mainly naval. Although Carthagen initially won, the Romans built a naval fleet in a matter of months and defeated the enemy by employing a tactic called corvus (link one ship to enemy ship by a bridge) and took advantage of superior infantery.
