History pre-1500 is a hoax.

Nope, it most certainly is not.

Scipio Africanus eventually crushed Hannibal at Zama 202BCE. Even carthage eventually exiled Hannibal and he went to serve Antiochus the Great in the east. He tried his lot as an admiral and was a failure. He later committed suicide as the Romans were closing in on him.

He never had a clue on how to make Rome submit. Back then, the Romans never surrendered. They always fought on till victory.

According to the documentary they, his own government refused to send reinforcements he wanted. So who knows how this would have went if he received the backup he asked for.

Rome at this point was the superior sea power.
Carthage could not simply sail troops into southern Italy.
Thats why the reinforcement army led by his brother had to cross the alps from spain.

i ve read
missed the point
why 'the most important' ...?

armies knew 2000 y before that , to go close off wells etc

Because military leaders from that point forward tried to duplicate the encirclement tactic used by Hannibal at Cannae.

It was the classic example of how to beat a greater force than that of your own on the battlefield.

Alexander the Great used tactics with more in common to Roman legions than Hannibal.

Just saying.
