While watching the epic battle scene at the end of last Sunday's episode of Game of Thrones, I was reminded of a similar battle during the time of the Roman Republic. The Battle of Lake Trasimene was one of the most horrific defeats ever suffered by the Roman Army after the Roman consul, Flaminius, was led by Hannibal into an ambush. Using historical documents written by Polybius and Livy, I tell the story of the battle, focusing on the conduct of Flaminius. I then reflect on the conduct of Jaime Lannister in the fictional battle before offering lessons that we can all learn from these commanders.
