Will Cuppy made a good point; No matter what you think of him, and despite the uselessness of them in battle, Hannibal's ability to scrounge up a few elephants was to be admired. Even when you consider his two major victories were when "He didn't have an elephant to his name".

POLL DESCRIPTION
In the book Great Generals of the Ancient World, the author contends that Hannibal is not a battlefield genius. He simply looked good due to the often inept Roman generals who opposed him. Do you agree?
