Hannibal's Great Victories
The first encounter with the Romans came almost at once, at the Ticinus River. In a battle involving mainly cavalry, the Carthaginians won a quick victory. The bulk of the Roman army was still intact, however, and Rome sent a second army north to join it. In early December Hannibal lured the combined force into a trap on the Trebia River near Placentia (Piacenza) and destroyed it.

Over the winter Hannibal made alliances among the Gauls, and in the spring marched south. Near Lake Trasimeno he ambushed and destroyed a Roman army. The Carthaginian army continued south and the Romans prepared to defend Rome against assault, but Hannibal had no wish to besiege a walled city. In August, 216 B.C., he met the Romans at Cannae. Greatly outnumbered, Hannibal used an enveloping movement to surround the Roman forces and cut them to pieces.

Do you advocate infantcide? As the old Carthagianians are rumored to have practiced.
