Hannibal the Annihilator

In class we watched a movie from the History Channel that dramatizes the battle strategies of Hannibal, the chief of the Carthaginian army during the Second Punic War. It is done in the style of a graphic novel or the movie 300. I'm pretty sure the real Hannibal didn't look like a WWE wrestler, but he was a brilliant military leader.

1. Who was Hannibal?

     • What was his childhood like?

     • Who was his father?

     • How did he feel about Rome?

2. How did the First Punic War end?

3. How did the Second Punic War begin?

4. Describe the following:

     The Battle of Trebia

     The Battle of Lake Trasimene

     The Battle of Cannae

5. What was the Roman reaction to the invasion of Hannibal and the Carthaginians?

6. Who was Scipio Africanus?

7. Describe the Battle of Zama

8. How did the Second Punic War end?
