Camillan Roman

Historical Overview Section

During this era, Rome, and others of the Latin League, clashed with foreign powers, and not always successfully. In 390 BC Gallic tribes from Gallia Cisalpina (modern Po Valley) under the leadership of Brennus defeated the Roman legions and sacked Rome itself requiring a huge ransom to be paid out to avoid completely destroying the city. The Punic Wars were a series of three wars fought between Rome and the Early Carthaginians and Later Carthaginians between 264 and 146 BC. They are known as the Punic Wars because the Latin term for Carthaginian was Punici. By the end of the third war, after more than a hundred years and the deaths of many hundreds of thousands of soldiers from both sides, Rome had conquered Carthage's empire and razed the city, becoming the most powerful state of the Western Mediterranean.

With the end of the Macedonian Wars against the Later Macedonians - which ran concurrently with the Punic wars — and the defeat of the Later Seleucid King Antiochus III the Great, Rome emerged as the dominant Mediterranean power having occupied many of the Hellenistic Greek states and Rome had become the most powerful city in the classical world.

Using the army in ADLG

  • The restrictions on how this army can be fielded make list building easy!
  • You don't need to group the troops of each Legion under separate commanders.
  • The Latin allies and subjects may be a mistake. Better to fight in the open with high quality legions.
