To know what Hannibal was, what he did, and how and why he did it, is to look with more than usual intimacy into the causes and processes by which hte world we know was founded. Like Alexander and Napoleon, he ranks among those half-dozen great soldiers whose work broke down barriers and cleared the way for larger ideas of civilization....
Hannibal (also known as Hannibal Barca, l. 247-183 BCE) was a Carthaginian general during the Second Punic War between Carthage and Rome (218-202 BCE). He is considered one of the greatest generals of antiquity and his tactics are still studied and used in the present day.
