Who was Hannibal?

PUNIC WATCH: THE ELEPHANT HAN Who was Hannibal, when did he cross the Alps with his elephant army and where was Carthage? He is seen as one of the greatest commanders in military history and famously marched across the Alps and into Italy (David Hughes, The Sun). This isn't the Sun's usual fare. But for some reason they have taken an interest in Hannibal Barca. The wordplay in the headline is commmendably dreadful.

There are many past posts on Hannibal in PaleoJudaica's archives.
