Ships Alive !

THFE Productions have a set of three videos on YOUTUBE concerning Punic Wars galleys and naval warfare.

Whilst disagreeing with some minor points, I recommend these videos wholeheartedly.

The videos use the Rome:Total War game package to generate documentary footage and it works very well ! It is great to see galleys in action and they look better here than in the over-dramatic, klunky promo videos for the game.

There are three videos




The content is well-researched and up-to-date rather than the hackneyed material so often regurgitated in popular books and videos.

Watching these videos gives a great overview of naval warfare in the Punic Wars. Certainly more satisfying than Osprey New Vanguard 225.

AND the ships are seen animated - almost alive !!
