6 Hannibal's retreat in Italy. 3 Conclusion of Second Punic War (203–201 BC). Return to Carthage. Col de Mont Cenis (most fully argued by Denis Proctor, Hannibal's March in History). By whichever route, his passage over the Alps is one of the most celebrated achievements of any military force in ancient warfare. Hannibal's perilous march brought him into the Roman territory and frustrated the attempts of the enemy to fight out the main issue on foreign ground.
