Carthaginians vs. Romans, 216 BC: Hannibal's Carthaginians wiped out a superior Roman army at Cannae, in southern Italy. Hannibal's tactical brilliance made Cannae a textbook case, cited by Norman Schwarzkopf as a model for his plans in Desert Storm. The engraving shows the death of Roman general Lucius Aemilius Paullus. (Read an account of Hannibal's victory.) Pinelli/Hulton Archive/Getty Images hide caption
