Hannibal : a history of the art of war among the Carthaginians and Romans down to the battle of Pydna, 168 B.C., with a detailed account of the second Punic war by Theodore Ayrault Dodge( Book )

42 editions published between 1891 and 2005 in English and held by 734 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Hannibal is often considered the finest general the world has ever known. Setting out from Carthaginian-dominated Spain with a small army of select troops, he fought his way over the Pyrenees and crossed the Alps with elephants and full baggage train. Descending into Italy, he destroyed the main Roman army at Lake Trasimeno, and came close to conquering Rome itself. At Cannae, Hannibal's brilliant calvary tactics enabled him to cut to pieces a reassembled Roman army, and his subsequent defeats over a fifteen-year stay in Italy were due more to lack of sufficient support from home than to any failings of generalship. T.A. Dodge's classic history, first published in 1891, is equally perceptive of Hannibal's military prowess and his visionary character. Dodge followed Hannibal's route from Carthage to Italy, paying particular attention to the famous crossing of the Alps, exploring every pass in order to determine Hannibal's route. In this book, he wrote an entire history of the art of war among these two mighty armies, and included hundreds of invaluable illustrations. HANNIBAL remains unequalled as the most comprehensive and readable study of history's greatest general."--BOOK COVER

"Julius Caesar, one of the world's greatest generals, learnt his first lessons in the art of war when he was still mainly involved in political rather than military life, suppressing the unruly Lusitanian tribes while governor of Spain. In 45 B.C., the year before his assassination, he was back in Spain for his last victory. The intervening, years of campaign saw him earning a formidable military reputation. Nine years' fighting in Gaul were his "school in the grand operations of war", during which time he also led two invasions of Britain. Two years after crushing the united Gaulish armies at the battle of Alesia, Caesar's forces crossed the Rubicon to take on Pompey's army in civil war. Campaigns in Egypt and across Northern Africa (defeating Scipio) followed, before Caesar's return to Spain to inflict final defeat on the Pompeian army at Munda. Before writing his classic account of Caesar's campaings, Dodge visited all of the great general's know battlefields. Familiar with their topography and gaining insight into the course of the battles as a result, he provides descriptions of the actions that are distinguished by their clarity. Dodge goes on to examine Caesar's strategy and tactics and the structure and operation of his army, in detail, and surveys the stagnation of the art of war in the Roman Empire after Caesar's death. In this unrivalled work, he shows that "Taken in all his characters, Caesar is the greatest man in Antiquity". Classic account of Caesar's campaigns Military analysis of Caesar's methods Many charts, maps, plans of battle and illustrations."--Jacket

Alexander : a history of the origin and growth of the art of war from the earliest times to the Battle of Ipsus, 301 BC, with a detailed account of the campaigns of the great Macedonian by Theodore Ayrault Dodge( Book )

Alexander the Great (356-323 B.C.) was incontestably one of the greatest military generals of all time. From the time he sacked Thebes and crossed the Hellespont to his death eleven years later, he conquered the entire Persian empire, including Tyre, Egypt, and Babylon, and moved on to present-day northern India and Afghanistan. He influenced the spread of Hellenism throughout the Near East and Asia, establishing many cities such as Alexandria that flourished long after his death. This classic study of Alexander, his predecessors, and his influence on the art of war remains fascinating and relevant over a hundred years after its initial publication. The classical works dealing with warfare in and before Alexander's time gave little more than bare facts of military matters; Dodge's contribution was to vividly reconstruct every major battle of Alexander's brilliant military career, to provide background material concerning the art of war before and during Alexander's reign, and to fully illustrate his narrative with invaluable maps and charts. The result is a masterpiece of military history--the book that inspired General J.F.C. Fuller to write his own classic study of Alexander, and one which will similarly inspire generations of future readers
