This article mentions around 217 BC he "executing the first recorded turning movement in military history". I was wondering if the author(s) could compare this as well: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battle_of_Guiling

Thank you.

Art: Hannibal Crossing the Alps[edit]

Regarding the color illustration of "Hannibal Crossing the Alps": it is clearly not a painting but rather an old book illustration. However, no source, no book title, author's name, or illustrator's name is given. I suspect from the artistic style that both the book and the illustration are no longer under copyright, but Wiki needs to be sure. The lack of source and artist credit is disturbing merely from a reference/encyclopedia point of view.

Cannae[edit]

Considering the military achievements of Trebia,Lake Trasimene and Canaae. I think their should be some description of the actual battles.

Confusions[edit]

There have been many confusions over which war Hannibal fought in, the main argument is; did he fight in the first or Second Punic War? I have recently edited the article to say that he fought in the Second, I know this from many sources and logically deduced that he could not have possible fought in the first Punic war. The First Punic War was 264 - 241 BC, Hannibal had only been born in 247 BC, and could not have commanded or fought at the age of six. — Preceding unsigned comment added by HistoryAddict2000 (talkcontribs) 20:13, 18 June 2014 (UTC)

Gee, thanks for sorting that one out! The only problem is that the sentence was about his father. Paul B (talk) 20:29, 18 June 2014 (UTC)

Exile (195–183/181 BC)[edit]

The two last sentences of this paragraph, if correct, are misplaced: at this point of the story, Hannibal is dead! Sapphorain (talk) 10:16, 9 November 2014 (UTC)
