Excerpt from Heresies of Sea Power

Now it may equally well be advanced that the Carthaginians 1 selected their 'long march through Gaul' because Spain was the base they drew their best troops from and because they proposed extending their Spanish empire down into Italy. All through this Second Punic War Carthage was as able to use the sea as Rome, and Hannibal's brother Mago took his reinforcements to Spain by sea. He took them to Spain for military reasons, though they were destined for Italy direct, and the influence of Sea Power in the war was often trifling save in so far as both sides had full use of the sea as a highway whenever inclined.

Book Description:

Published in 1906, this work was an astute critique of Mahan's The Influence of Sea Power on History (1890), which argued that naval supremacy was the precondition of military success. Frederick Jane (1865-1916) looks carefully at other factors that play a role in a nation's ability to prevail in conflicts.
