The battle order for Cannae, Cartaginian side. Light infantry forward; gauls and spanish heavies forward with the shape of a bow to absorb the roman 16(!) legions who always went for the center; the cavalry and the Lybian phalanxes to turn the flanks and rear of the romans: 50.000 dead romans in six hours!
The "bow" in a slightly better shape.
