  1. why you put it just happened that Hannibal won. if he had not got the calvary aid and he and his brother [how many brothers did he have?] had not got the men to return to the fight and if the Libyans had not entered the fight,the Romans would have won, so it was not planned,it happened

  2. I have already seen this but what the hell I'm see it again and I really liked how the video began with the boy and his father hunt and noticing the screams of battle in the distance,I really would love to see the civilian life in this era's like in Cyraus the great,Alexander the great,Julius Caesar etc I would like to see how the greats of the time were viewed by normal people of the day.
