 The Battle of Zama - History Forum
I think Scipio was to good a general to allow another Cannae to happen, even if the cavalry was equal in quality, Scipio had a clear superiority in infantry quality, the legions he had were better than the majority of Hannibals troops, excluding his veterans.
A total contrast to most of Hannibals previous battles where it was he who chose the ground and when to give battle, had cavalry been equal and cancelled each other out the legions would still have won the day, itd of just take longer and more casualties IMO.
The war consisted of a surprisingly long seige of Carthage after which it was taken by storm, most of its population slaughtered and the survivors enslaved; city sacked and demolished and the fields sown with salt.
