Livy writes (XXI, 4): "Never before has the soul of one and the same man was not so uniformly adapted to both so diverse responsibilities - povelevaniyu and obedience; so it was difficult to distinguish who they more valued - whether in chief or army. Nobody Hasdrubal not given willingly by the detachment chief, which was entrusted to matter that requires persistence and courage, but also the soldiers or to others under whose superiors were no more self-confident and brave. As far as he was bold, rushing into danger, just as he was circumspect in the most danger. There was no work, in which he would be tired body or discouraged. And the heat, and cold, he bore with equal patience, ate and drank as much as required by nature, but not for pleasure; distributed time for waking and sleeping, not paying attention to the day and night - he paid rest the hours that he remained free from work, though he did not use soft bedding and did not require silence, to make it easier to fall asleep; often we saw him wrapped in a military cloak, was sleeping among the soldiers standing on guard or picket. Clothes he did not differ from their peers, only armament but for the horse it can be found. As in the cavalry and the infantry, he left a far other, first rushed into the fight, after the last battle left the field. But equally these high qualities he possessed and terrible vices. His cruelty incomes Dila inhumanity to his perfidy surpassed the notorious "puniyskoe" perfidy. He did not know the truth or virtue, did not fear the gods, did not keep the oath, did not respect the shrine. "
