Roms krig med Karthago och Hannibal by Appianus

By Appianus

Detta är den rafflande berättelsen om fältherren Hannibal från Karthago som år 218 f.Kr. marscherar med sin armé och en mängd stridselefanter från Spanien över Pyrenéerna och Alperna och väl i Italien direkt vinner två betydande segrar över romarna, bland annat slaget vid Cannae.

Romarna var minst sagt skakade. Hannibal kom att behärska Syditalien lower than drygt 15 år, males misslyckades med att framtvinga Roms fall. Han och hans armé besegrades slutgiltigt i Nordafrika 202 f.Kr., och Hannibal flydde och begick senare självmord. Huvudstaden utplånades 146 f.Kr. efter att den romerske statsmannen Cato d.ä. länge upprepat att: "För övrigt anser jag att Karthago ska förstöras."

Konflikten mellan Rom och Karthago brukar kallas för de puniska krigen och slutade med att Romarriket fick herraväldet över Medelhavsområdet.

Roms krig med Karthago och Hannibal handlar inte bara om stora slag och magnifika fältherrar utan också om det dagliga livet i en lite lätt uttråkad armé som röjer runt i fiendeland.

Frederick the Great would have to give way to a more imposing figure; perhaps Tirpitz saw himself in that role. Tirpitz’s first move to position himself as the father of a “high-seas fleet” had been to ask for the creation of a “strategic-tactical Admiralty Staff ” as “a main task in the navy”; such a move was essentially a declaration of independence from the Prussian army’s firm control of German sea forces. He also implicitly argued for construction of a large German “war-fleet stationed in European waters” as an adjunct to the “annihilation strategy” being developed by Alfred von Schlieffen and the German General Staff for the defeat of France through the Low Countries.

Finally, the United States could not even impose its will upon fractious hemispheric neighbors. S. fleet was so inferior to that of Chile that Washington could not intervene on behalf of friendly Peru when the two Latin countries went to war. Only a modern industrial navy could preserve and promote expanding American overseas interests, and only an Isthmian canal could guarantee the shuffling of fleet units from one ocean to the other that would ensure a rapid response to hemispheric and Pacific crises.

40 On April 10, 1898, the Reichstag passed the First Naval Law, calling for the construction of nineteen battleships, eight armored cruisers, twelve large cruisers, and thirty smaller cruisers by April 1, 1904. Moreover, capital ships would be automatically replaced every twenty-five years to guard against obsolescence in an age of rapid industrial and technical advances. At first foreign observers were not unduly alarmed by the German initiative. The nature of the fleet set forth in the law seemed to imply that Wilhelm and Tirpitz intended only to strengthen Germany’s existing coastal-defense forces.
