Description

Hannibal Barca (/ˈhænɪbəl/; 247 – between 183 and 181 BC)[n 1] was a African general of the PhoenicianCanaanite state of Ancient Carthage (today known as Tunisia), and is widely considered as one of the greatest military commanders in history. His father Hamilcar Barca was the leading Carthaginian commander during the First Punic War.

One of his most famous achievements was at the outbreak of the Second Punic War, when he marched an army which included war elephants from Iberia (Spain) over the Pyrenees and the Alps into Italy. In his first few years in Italy, he won dramatic victories at the TrebiaLake Trasimene, and Cannae. He distinguished himself for his ability to determine his and his opponent’s respective strengths and weaknesses, and to plan battles accordingly. Hannibal’s well-planned strategies allowed him to conquer many allies of Rome.

Hannibal occupied part of southern Italy for 15 years, but was unable to march on Rome. An enemy counter-invasion of North Africa forced him to return to Carthage, where he was decisively defeated by Scipio Africanus at the Battle of Zama.

Hannibal is often regarded as one of the greatest military strategists in history and one of the greatest generals of Mediterranean antiquity. This praise has earned him a strong reputation in the modern world, and he was regarded as a great strategist by Napoleon and others.
