Hannibal (247-183/181 BCE) was the Ancient Carthaginian General who fought against Rome in the Second Punic War and he nearly won against the Roman War Machine. This course will study what we know about Hannibal himself, the context and duration of the Second Punic War, and did he cross the Alps with elephants. Hannibal, a consummate general with a genius for strategy, was a worthy enemy for Rome. Carthage lost the First Punic War and so the spirit of revanchism prevailed in the North African state as Hannibal promised his father that he would never be a friend of Rome.
