Learn to follow before you can learn to lead by Gold-Seven Learn to follow before you can learn to lead by Gold-Seven
Under the watchful eyes of his father Hamilcar Barca, Hannibal is prepared for a life of leadership - and before he can lead, he must first learn to follow.

This paves the way for Hannibal's later success as the commander of an army composed of Iberians, Africans, Numidians, Punics, Celts, Sicilians, Italics, and the occasional Greek - he gets no extra treatment, learns their languages, shares their hardships and has grown up as one of them, so that they follow him through mountains, swamps, and through years of a losing war without any sign of mutiny.

Schmincke and Daniel Smith watercolours on Stillman&Birn watercolour sketchbook, A4 size.
