Episode 12 - The Battle for Carthage

December 16, 2017

After the stunning Greek victory at White Tunis, Agathocles began leisurely pillaging the Carthaginian countryside, amassing riches and terrorizing the inhabitants.  Back in Sicily, Hamilcar Gisco was not so lucky, ultimately losing his life in a disastrous night attack.  Now, with her armies crippled, a foreign invader at her gates, and traitors within her walls, Carthage would have to summon all her strength and resourcefulness to survive the coming days.  As a special Christmas present to you all, I have uploaded a map of Carthage and the surrounding civilizations to the notes of this episode.  Merry Christmas!

 Update: As I feared, the map did not show up in the episode notes on iTunes. Until I get it sorted out, I have attached a link to the map here. Enjoy!
