  1. After the battle of Lake Trasimene, Hannibal was at a crossroad. For the first time he had the opportunity to try to take Rome. We wanted to discuss this important issue in a separate video before the three important upcoming battles (Geronium, Ager Falernus and Cannae).

    Should he have tried to attack the Roman capital after Trasimene? Since the times of Polybius, historians argue about this issue and we'd love to see what your thoughts are.
