Crassus: Rich man, poor man --
Gaugamela. Cannae: In a classic example of double-envelopment maneuver, an under-fortified Hannibal inflicted the greatest ever defeat on the forces of Rome, who marched out eight legions strong into their surprising defeat. Crassus: rich man, poor man: Although he may have been the richest man in Rome, Crassus was the poor relation in the First Triumvirate. He needed military laurels to raise him to the level of Pompey and Caesar, and he chose to try and get them in Parthia. His vanity cost the lives of seven legions, his son, and his own. Gaugamela: Gaugamela was the greatest battle fought by Alexander the Great, and it gave him control of the Persian Empire. Darius raised a titanic army against Alexander and picked the ideal spot for his cavalry-led force, but it was not enough.
