Far from the first to use elephants in warfare, Carthage’s use of these mighty beasts was made famous during the Second Punic War when Hannibal brought thirty-seven across the Alps and into Italy, where they were used to devastating effect at the Battle of Trebia, panicking the Roman cavalry and their Gallic allies. Hannibal’s advantage would not last, however, as Rome developed effective counter-measures to his war elephants as the war progressed.
