  • hello from new jersey usa

    hello everyone i am a college student who is in love with military history, strategy and leadership by the end of 9th grade i read the art of war by sun tzu and moved on to bigger stuff like the seven military classics of ancient china and some stuff of questionable authenticity but it was still pretty cool i am trying to read on war by von Clausewitz and a bunch of other stuff all at the same time

    btw dose anyone know anything about Hannibal barca ever writing something like a book or what ever with his views on stuff because i saw it in one of my questionable sources haven seen anything that backs it up but regardless i think it is pretty wise take this quote for example " shame your enemy through your mercy"

    Nice quote; in here things get a bit heated, so just stay on topic and ignore the provokers :-). The records of the Carthaginans were destroyed by Rome. Like Cato said: delenda est Cartago, unfortunately that included their libraries. From what I know their script has yet to be deciphered; the way Greek Linear B was, which gave the key decipheing Minoan. There are still some mysteries from this time, good luck.
