From the very beginning I was not sure, but this confirmed it. The gobernanza that was at the forefront of the Group was one of the generals, Aemilius Paullus, for this reason They forgave his life to go in search of the Roman consul. Third lost his horse, which ran terrified when she had fallen. He could only find his spear and shield. He had to seek refuge somewhere, since it was exposed to the cavalry enemy. Luckily, the enormous and profound training of the infantry was to the front. So you went running towards her.
Next to him was a dozen of equites who were in the same situation. Some even retained their horses. Arriving in rows, you could feel a great relief. He tried to look at the front, but the huge crowd, beside annoying dust and the Sun’s front, prevented him from observing what was happening. An optio realized that many men looked to the equites in rows, many of them wounded, probably nervous to see that the cavalry was defeated, thus approached him to third to ask him about the situation. Third was surprised that the life of the general was his greatest concern.
After being harassed by the Balearic Slingers, the Hannibal forces were preparing for the fight. Third only managed to attract a wave of Spears that loomed in direction to the enemy. They were launched by thousands of pilum and gladius resulted. The war begins again. The Carthaginians fought courageously, but could not contain the strength and drive of eight legions. It was unstoppable. The numerical superiority of the Romans was making a difference in the front. Go ahead! Go ahead! shouted Centurions and options with as much determination that they made to vibrate the entire ground. The din of each step, each legionnaire, was a step toward victory. The screams of battle, sweat and the guide of the banners raised to the sky, inflating the Roman spirits towards an uncontainable ecstasy of war and destruction, the sons of Mars.
