Summary
"Hannibal's enduring reputation as a man and as a general is due to his enemies' fascination with him. The way his legend was shaped and became ingrained in Greek and Roman awareness is one of the main themes of this book. Under Hannibal's leadership, Carthage came close to dominating the western Mediterranean; his total victory would have changed the course of history. That he was a brilliant general is unquestioned and his strategy and tactics have been studied as real-life lessons in war even into the modern era. And yet on at least three occasions (in 217, 216 and 207 BC) a different strategic choice might have brought that elusive overall victory. This book examines the inherent contradictions here, as well as the puzzle of the final battle of Zama."--BOOK JACKET
