Quintus Fabius Verrucosus Cunctator was a Roman general who thought outside the box. While the typical Roman response to the disastrous invasion of Italy by Hannibal was to confront him in a pitched battle, Fabius realized that Hannibal was a military genius beyond peer, and that the only way Rome could avert destruction would be to wear Hannibal's forces down in a war of attrition. Four successive battles, all disasters for Rome, proved Fabius correct. Maximus, Warts and All, is the story of Quintus Fabius Maximus' life as I believe he would have told it.
