Excerpts from the Paper

The beginning:
"Hannibal: Enemy of Rome" by Leonard Cottrell
Hannibal: Enemy of Rome was written by Leonard Cottrell and was published by Da Capo Press in 1992. This classic biography of ancient Carthage’s most famous general features a compelling format and narrative style, through which Cottrell provides a comprehensive and riveting account of Hannibal’s campaign in Italy during the Second Punic War. As he weaves his research experiences and insights into the historical narrative of Hannibal’s campaign in Italy, he provides an illuminating scholarly perspective while enabling his readers to vicariously experience events, almost as if they were eyewitnesses as Hannibal and his soldiers battled the Romans for control of Italy.
The end:
.....rld. Cottrell’s portrait of ancient Carthage’s legendary general is valuable not only because of Hannibal’s historical importance, but also because of the insights the author provides into military leadership, logistics, tactics, and strategy. I highly recommend this book, not only for students of ancient history but for anyone interested in learning more about leadership, for Hannibal possessed exceptional leadership skills and displayed them throughout his long and active life as a general and statesman.
