For book club at school I'm ordering a game called enemies of Rome. I've decided to do a campaign 'bout it. It's about Hannibal some African (Carthaginian) General who fights the roman empire in the second punic war.

talknight2 As if there isn't anyone 'round here that doesn't know who the greatest general of all antiquity was... (Hannibal if you are one of those persons)

Anyway, I might try it out sometime.
Commando_42 NO!

Hannibal is not by far the greatest general, try Napoleon or Alexander the Great

EDIT: or Ghengis Khan

Ordering a game... for a book club. My how book club's changed. In any case yes I'd say Hannibal's up there as far as great generals go.
Cyberatog Napeleon was a sissy and Alexander only knew of Zerg rushes. Neither one of those lasses could maneuver elephants through mountains, and neither had a manly beard.
... And Ghengis Khan was a sissy with his hit-and-run tactics aswell.
Joan D'arc was manlier.

And none of those girlies are remembered as "the father of tactics", taste them apples. >:3

talknight2 Yeah... Somthing like that.
SatanChild666 I was more thinking about General MacArthur or Erwin Rommel, but nvm...
Commando_42 Napoleon, was the creator of warfare tactics that you see continuing for 150 years after he died, and his organization and train of thought is still used today. He standardized equipment and reorganized the army into the efficient killing machine of the 20th century. Note that in most general’s personal journals, that they have their dream to be like Napoleon and Alexander the Great.

General George A. Patton used Napoleon in his speeches and quotes.

"Some soldiers can move, and some soldiers can shoot, but when you can move and shoot, you and Napoleon are pissing through the same straw." -General George A. Patton

Many Civil War generals wrote about their admiration of Napoleon, and copied his battle tactics and strategies.

And for the record, any nation that gets attacked SEVEN times over again by 5+ nations is going to lose sometime (Napoleonic Wars)

And for you religious people out there, the King James version of the Bible prophecies about Alexander the Great.

EDIT: Call 100,000 man invasion of China
hit-and-run tactics for the Mongols. They were also master of siege warefare and inventors of the conter-wieght trebutchet that detroyed the 2 biggest Chinese forts. If Alexander needs blitz tactics to conquer an empire the size of the US in a few years, so be it. I give credit for Hannibal executing the first turning manuver in recorded history at the Battle of Lake Trasimene, but it didn't have so big an impact on history as those generals like Napoleon, Alexander, Rommel, etc.

Commando_42 Also, Napoleon made a similar march through the Alps, in his Italian campaign.

*Note: Hannibal only had 5 elephants when he finished his journey through the Alps. A big drop from his 30 elephnts he started with.
