Was Hannibal Barca a great military commander, or was he a wannabe?
Hannibal led the Carthaginian army to 3 major victories in Roman Italy, and kept his army in the field in hostile territory for 15 years, yet he failed to force Rome to make peace with him. At the end of 15 years, he left Italy to defend Carthage from Scipio's Roman army, and there he was defeated at the Battle of Zama. So I ask, was Hannibal a great commander, or was he ultimately a wanna be, with talent, but lacking ability to finish what he started?
