roman.military.history. Although Pyrrhus was eager to resolve the campaign quickly, his adviso

Although Pyrrhus was eager to resolve the campaign quickly, his advisors were less enthusiastic. This was because in the usual religious ceremonies before a battle the omens had been interpreted as poor, and so they didn't wish to fight while the favour of the gods wasn't on their side. Pyrrhus was unfazed by this, and decided to also launch a bold night attack on the Romans. His plan was to take the pick of his men and elephants with him on a march around the Roman camp, while the bulk of his army waited at the plains. In this manner, Curius would be trapped between two forces whilst also being heavily outnumbered. --- Pyrrhus is said to have had another bad omen where in a dream his teeth fell out and blood poured from his mouth, and if true then the results of his night assault were certainly fitting. As the Epirotes moved through thick woods and crags, they ended up marching longer than expected and as a result their torches burned out well before they reached their destination, causing great confusion. Pyrrhus' army was revealed to Curius at first light, which still surprised the Romans, though his own column was likely very tired by now. As Pyrrhus moved his men down from the heights he was on, Curius deemed his omens to be favourable and moved out his army to attack Pyrrhus' vanguard. --- Curius easily routed these troops, and then fell upon the main Epirote force beyond them, and quickly routed them as well with heavy casualties, capturing several elephants also. Pyrrhus escaped to his second division, and Curius was now confident in victory and attacked this as well. The Romans cut up one of the Epirote flanks, which one we don't know, but in "one section" as Plutarch vaguely states the Epirote war elephants once more proved their worth and drove the Romans all the way back to their camp. However, Curius at this point committed the troops left behind to guard the camp against the Epirotes, and they specifically targeted the elephants. The Romans threw their javelins at them, causing the beasts to panic from their wounds and stampede into their own men, allowing the Romans to rout the entire Epirote army.

If you know where to look, you can still see the wounds of the Finnish Civil War. This building in Tampere still has many of the bullet scars it acquired during the intense fighting for the city in March to April 1918. The White victory over the Reds here is seen as the turning point for the civil war but it wasn't without controversy. Today, even with physical scars fading, the battle still has effects upon the mental and political subconscious of the citizens. #finlandatwar #finland #finnishhistory #militaryhistory #finnishcivilwar #tampere #history #historiansunion #war #civilwar
