Here, John Peddie provides a challenging re-evaluation of the Carthaginian's generalship of Hannibal, and asks how was it that a man so often described by historians as a military genius and a brilliant tactician could have plunged so deeply into a situation in which he was, almost inevitably, to fail?
John Peddie, OBE. MC, was a retired regular infantry soldier and this led to the authoritative nature of his books on the subject of Roman history. His other books include 'The Roman War Machine', 'Invasion: The Roman Conquest of Britain' and 'Alfred: Warrior King' which was commended by the British Army Review as a "masterly" didentangling of the King's campaign. He died in 1999.
