Paragraph Test - 30

Answer the questions according to the reading passages.
The great Carthaginian general Hannibal was, like Napoleon 2.000 years later, a master strategist who had the ability to select the most favourable terrain for a battle. His successful tactic at the battle of Cannae in 216 BC was to allow his light infantry to fall back before the Roman advance. The Carthaginian cavalry then moved out to the flanks to surround the numerically superior Roman army. This victory was not followed up for several reasons, however: Hannibal's lack of naval support, his very long supply lines, and inadequate recruitment policies to obtain more mercenaries. The war ended eventually in a Roman victory. In the Third Punic War from 149 to 146 BC, Rome destroyed the city of Carthage and declared the region as a Roman province.
