props dude nice essay, about one of my favorite military leaders

Mine too. Few have done so much in so little time. Perhaps Alexander the Great, and maybe Hannibal, also have rivaled his greatness in such short time. Hannibal pissed off the entire Roman Army for about 30 years before they finally got rid of him. Alexander, well, I don't have to say much. In about 11 years, he conquered the largest empire until that time, expanded it quite a bit, and conquered most of the known world... all before the age of 33.

hey khan v.s alexander would be a great battle to put in the history section, you'd be eprfect for writing it too.

oh and Hannibal did that when Rome, was just well rome. i highly doubt he could've done this when rome, was ROME ONE OF THE GREATEST EMPIRES IN CIVILIZATION. if you get my drift

You are correct. The empire was still developing. It was still a republic. Alright, scratch that with hannibal.

do you think napolean, as far military genius goes, is up there with khan and alexander?

Heck yeah, I totally forgot about him. Yes, he practically rewrote the rules or warfare overnight. There were three basic rules of 1750's to 1800 warfare:

1. Don't march at night.
2. Don't march or fight in the rain.
3. Don't march or fight on Sunday.

I don't know why these were rules, but they were. Napoleon broke all three of them, and it worked. He also immensely increased the use of artillery as a factor in battles, and he didn't worry about supply trains and such that could slow him down. His army lived off the land wherever they went.

War produces classic remarks by military commanders; on February 26, 1991, the US 1st Armored Division, the famous Big Red One, encountered the allegedly elite Iraqi Republican Guard. The divisional commander, Major General Ronald Griffiths, radioed his deputy, who was riding with the armored spearhead. "I understand we are engaging the Medina Division?" he said, referring to one of the crack Iraqi Guard divisions. "Negative, sir," came the reply. "We are destroying the Medina Division."
Great proof that despite their quantity, the Soviet tanks that NATO planners feared above all else could be shredded by the M1 Abrams, Challenger 2, Leopard 2, LeClerc, Ariete, and Merkava with ease. Patton would be proud.

It is a good name. General Czar Alexander the III was great, Marshall Georgi Zhukov, along with Hitler's arrogance, saved Russian in WWII, but General Winter has always been there to save the Russian people from those stupid enough to send armed forces three thousand miles into the heart of Asia through the wasteland of Eastern Russia.

Exactly. Either start your invasion RIGHT after the spring thaw, or come up through Central Asia. Hitler delated Operation Barbarossa till June. By the time he was outside Moscow and Stalingrad, the coldest Russian winter of the century had set in. And the rest is history.
