As he became a Carthaginian general, he attacked one of Rome´s allies in southern Spain. The war began in 218 B.C. Hnnibal outsmarted the Romans since they were planning a counterattack but Hannibal led thousands of soldiers (60.000 aprox.) and war elephants out of Spain and across the Alps to invade the Italian Peninsula. This caught the Romans by surprise. This is how the war started.
