King Pyrrhus: Eagle of the Epirotes

The term “Pyrrhic victory,” has become so closely associated with Pyrrhus of Epirus that we seem to forget almost everything else about him. Despite his ultimate defeat in Italy against Rome, Pyrrhus had a long and broad military career across the known Greek world. Hannibal, famous for his own victories against Rome, rated Pyrrhus as one of the greatest generals of his time.
