Fascinating listen. For all his genius and success this is also a sad story of betrayal. I think if the merchant weenies back in Carthage had actually backed up their general he would have possibly capitalized on all his victories and Rome would have disappeared. He was that superior. If Carthage would have supported Hannibal, Scipio never would have had the chance to rise up to defeat him. Carthage never would commit. Merchant weenies.
