http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battle_of_Zama

Zama is located SW of Tunis in North Africa.

Zama is also a city in Japan - but not where they deployed war elephants!

Thanks for the "Zama" info. I was completely clueless as to what our FRiend Ax was referring to. Suppose I should bone up on current geography and stop spending so much time in the ancient world.

BTW, I recall that Zama had the most elephants (both sides) of any battle in history. Must have been something to see. I wonder if it was like the big battle scene in Return of the King.

Just kidding! I was stationed at Camp Zama back in the day. I also went on R&R to Tunisia but I don’t remember seeing any road signs for Zama there.
