£25.00 £3.99

The purpose of this book is to fill in an historical gap, the largely underestimated period from 241 BC to 219 BC. The two decades between the end of the First Punic War and the beginning of the Second represent a key period in the development of Rome’s imperial ambitions, both within Italy and beyond. Within Italy, Rome faced an invasion of Gauls from Northern Italy acquired her first provinces. The period did, as well shown be the author, see Rome “spread her wings” as it acquired its first province in the aftermath of the First Punic war. However, it also saw Rome put an end once and for all to the major threat represented by the Gallic tribes settled north of the Po.
