 Hamilcar Barca - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
He distinguished himself during the First Punic War in 247, when he took over the chief command in Sicily at a time when the island was almost completely in the hands of the Romans.
After recruiting and training a new army in some Numidian forays he led on his own responsibility an expedition into Spain (236), where he hoped to gain a new empire to compensate Carthage for the loss of Sicily and Sardinia, and to serve as a base for a campaign of vengeance against the Romans.
Hamilcar stood out far above the Carthaginians of his age in military and diplomatic skill and in strength of patriotism; in these qualities he was surpassed only by his son Hannibal, whom he had imbued with his own deep hatred of Rome and trained to be his successor in the conflict.
