Hannibal zeigte Kühnheit in höchstem Grade und Besonnenheit. Hitze und Kälte ertrug er gleich gut, die Menge seiner Speisen und Getränke wurde vom natürlichen Bedürfnis, nicht von der Genußsucht bestimmt. Seine Kleidung hob sich von der seinesgleichen keineswegs ab. Er war der beste Soldat zu Pferd und auch zu Fuß. Diesen so großen Tugenden hielten übergroße Laster die Waage: eine unmenschliche Grausamkeit, eine mehr als punische Unredlichkeit, ihn band keine Götterfurcht, kein Eid, keine fromme Gewissenhaftigkeit” (Livius XXI 4). Was wir von Hannibal wirklich wissen und welche Bedeutung er für Rom und Karthago hatte, wird in dieser Biographie informativ und spannend dargestellt.

The life of the great military commander of ancient Carthage from the bestselling author of Thermopylae and Gibraltar. Born in Carthage in 247 BC, Hannibal Barca is considered one of the greatest military commanders of all time. Following the example set by his father, Hamilcar, he dedicated his life to the defeat of Rome. At the outbreak of the Second Punic War, Hannibal famously led an army across the Pyrenees and the Alps to victory against the Romans at the Battle of Trebia. In the years that followed, Hannibal led the Carthaginian war on Rome through some of the most brutal and costly battles in recorded history. In this richly detailed biography, Ernle Bradford tells the story of a great leader whose military strategies have been studied and copied by commanders throughout history, from his own Roman enemies to Napoleon Bonaparte.

Many books have been written on the Second Punic War and Hannibal in particular but few give much space to his campaigns in the years from 213 203 BC. Most studies concentrate on Hannibals series of stunning victories in the early stages of the war, culminating at Cannae in 216 BC, then refocus on the activities of his nemesis ,Scipio Africanus, in Spain until the two meet in the final showdown at Zama. But this has led to the neglect of some of the Carthaginian genius most remarkable campaigns. By 212 the wider war was definitely going against the Carthaginians. Yet Hannibal, despite being massively outnumbered and with little support from home, was able to sustain his polyglot army and campaign actively across southern Italy for another ten years. His skilful manoeuvring and victory in numerous engagements kept several veteran armies of the normally aggressive Romans tied up and on the defensive, until Scipios invasion of North Africa pulled him home to defend Carthage. Mike Roberts follows the course of these remarkable events in detail, analysing Hannibals strategy and aims in this phase of the war and revealing a genius that had lost none of its lustre in adversity.

Hannibal must transport sixty war elephants from Carthage in North Africa, across the Middle Sea to Iberia. He has to train his people to accomplish this difficult task. The first part of this project is to load one elephant on a ship and sail to the east on the eighteen-day voyage. He has chosen his largest elephant, Obolus, to use in the training of his men. During the loading the animal onto a ship, Obolus killed his longtime handler. The girl, Liada, is the only other person who can control the temperamental elephant. After she succeeds in guiding Obolus up the ramp and onto the deck of the ship, Hannibal asks her to go with the elephant to Iberia. Liada is reluctant to leave her friends at Carthage, but she’s also concerned about Obolus’ safety on the long voyage. She decides to leave her friends and take care of Obolus. PUBLISHER: TEKTIME

Sixteen philosophers come at Hannibal the way he comes at his victims—from unexpected angles and with plenty of surprises thrown in. Hannibal is a revolting monster, and yet a monster with whom we identify because of his intelligence, artistry, and personal magnetism. The chapters in this book pose many questions—and offer intriguing answers—about the enigma of Hannibal Lecter. What does the the relationship between Hannibal and those who know him—particularly FBI investigator Will Graham—tell us about the nature of friendship and Hannibal’s capacity for friendship? Does Hannibal confer benefits on society by eliminating people who don’t live up to his high aesthetic standards? Can upsetting experiences in early childhood turn you into a serial killer? Why are we enthralled by someone who exercises god-like control over situations and people? Does it make any difference morally that a killer eats his victims? Can a murder be a work of art? Several chapters look at the mind of this accomplished killer, psychiatrist, and gourmet cook. Is he a sociopath or a psychopath, or are these the same: Is he lacking in empathy: Apparently not, since he has a quick understanding of what other people think and feel. Maybe what he lacks is a conscience.

Hannibal is acknowledged to be one of history's greatest generals, and his crossing of the Alps - complete with elephants - to make war against Rome on its home soil is legendary. But even Hannibal met his match in Scipio, and ultimately Carthage was defeated by the rising power of Rome. In Hannibal's War, J. F. Lazenby provides the first scholarly account in English since 1886 solely devoted to the Second Punic War - what some have called the first "world war" for mastery of the Mediterranean world. By closely examining the accounts of Livy and Polybius, supplemented with the fruits of modern research, Lazenby provides a detailed military history of the entire war as it was fought in Italy, Spain, Greece, and North Africa. This edition includes a new preface covering recent research on Hannibal's war against Rome.

The Romans' destruction of Carthage after the Third Punic War erased any Carthaginian historical record of Hannibal's life. What we know of him comes exclusively from Roman historians who had every interest in minimizing his success, exaggerating his failures, and disparaging his character. The charges leveled against Hannibal include greed, cruelty and atrocity, sexual indulgence, and even cannibalism. But even these sources were forced to grudgingly admit to Hannibal's military genius, if only to make their eventual victory over him appear greater. Yet there is no doubt that Hannibal was the greatest Carthaginian general of the Second Punic War. When he did not defeat them outright, he fought to a standstill the best generals Rome produced, and he sustained his army in the field for sixteen long years without mutiny or desertion. Hannibal was a first-rate tactician, only a somewhat lesser strategist, and the greatest enemy Rome ever faced. When he at last met defeat at the hands of the Roman general Scipio, it was against an experienced officer who had to strengthen and reconfigure the Roman legion and invent mobile tactics in order to succeed. Even so, Scipio's victory at Zama was against an army that was a shadow of its former self. The battle could easily have gone the other way. If it had, the history of the West would have been changed in ways that can only be imagined. Richard A. Gabriel's brilliant new biography shows how Hannibal's genius nearly unseated the Roman Empire.

Un géant de l'Antiquité, ayant manqué de peu de dominer la Rome naissante. Né en 247 av. J.-C à Carthage, près de l'actuelle Tunis, Hannibal, élevé dans la haine de Rome par son père Hamilcar Barca, consacra sa vie à la combattre. C'est qui déclenche la deuxième guerre punique qui durera de -218 à -201. Après une traversée légendaire des Alpes, il envahit l'Italie où il remporte sur les Romains des batailles qui l'on fait comparer à Alexandre le Grand. Son écrasante victoire à Cannes le porte au faite de sa gloire avant qu'il ne rencontre un adversaire à sa mesure en la personne de Scipion l'Africain qui finit par l'emporter à Zama. La deuxième partie de son existence – il meurt en -183 – est marquée par une brillance activité réformatrice, précédant l'errance de l'exil. Menacé d'être livré aux romains, il choisit de mettre fin à ses jours. Dans ces pages sensibles, l'auteur dépeint non seulement l'incomparable chef de guerre mais aussi l'homme politique oublié, dont les buts étaient de dessiner une nouvelle géopolitique de la Méditerranée incluant la Rome naissante, et montre comment, malgré ses échecs, il est devenu qui a perduré à travers les siècles. Zakya Daoud, intellectuelle franco-marocaine, a publié plusieurs ouvrages, dont les biographies de Ferhat Abbas et de Ben Barka, ainsi que Maroc : les années de plomb 1958-1988. Chroniques d'une résistance.
