Information on battle of Cannae where Hannibal Barca defeated the Romans?

Please see our two articles in The International Journal of the Humanities: Mosig, Yozan D. and Imene Belhassen (2006), "Revision and Reconstruction in the Punic Wars: Cannae Revisited" and Mosig, Yozan D. and Imene Belhassen (2007), "Revision and Reconstruction in the Second Punic War: Zama--Whose Victory?" Although the first article details the reasons for Hannibal's victory as well as why he did not immediately march on Rome in the aftermath, the second paper (just published) offers a comparison of the battles of Cannae and Zama with additional information. Best wishes for 2008!
