Hannibal crosses the Alps
|Caption||Clash of Giants: How Hannibal Marched into History. Hannibal crosses the Alps. It was an undertaking the like of which the world had never seen - a whole army, complete with elephants was being taken over the Alps to do battle with Rome. Hannibal lost half his men and many of his elephants in crossing the Alps, but it was an extraordinary achievement none the less. The insert shows elephants crossing the Rhone on rafts. In order to trick the elephants to think they were still on dry land while crossing the river, Hannibal had their rafts covered with earth. The trick worked. Original artwork from Look and Learn no. 924 (6 October 1979).|
