A thought to ponder; Hannibal’s victory which was considered the model of warfare in Germany. From a letter from my French friends Pierre and Suzanne (with my english translation below).

 Le carthaginois Hannibal, qui fut un trƒÆ’†’¨s valeureux chef, combattit ƒÆ’†’  Cannes, c’ƒÆ’†’©tait 2 siƒÆ’†’¨cles avant Christ, et par une organisation de ses troupes remporta une complƒÆ’†’¨te victoire sur les romains.

Il disposait de 40.000 soldats, alors que les romains disposaient de 80.000 hommes plus 6.000 cavaliers

Il y a 80 ans, en Allemagne, cette bataille ƒÆ’†’©tait considƒÆ’†’©rƒÆ’†’©e comme le modƒÆ’†’¨le encore inƒÆ’†’©galƒÆ’†’© de la victoire intƒÆ’†’©grale ; celle qui bat l’ennemi aprƒÆ’†’¨s l’avoir encerclƒÆ’†’©, non seulement le bat mais le supprime.

La victoire n’est complƒÆ’†’¨te qu’avec la suppression des prisonniers.

 Hannibal the Carthaginian who was a very intrepid general, fought at Cannes, two centuries before Christ, and by organizing his troupes won a complete victory over the Romans.

He had 40,000 soldiers, while the Romans had 80,000 men plus 6000 horsemen.

Until eighty years ago, in Germany, this battle was considered the unmatched model of total victory; one that defeats the enemy after having encircled him, not only routs him, but also annihilates him.

Victory was not complete until the prisoners were eliminated.
