Re: Greatest Warrior and Greatest Military Genius before 1900
One of my votes for greatest warrior is Richard the Lionheart. He took back Jaffa from Saladin with 55 men by attacking from the beach! He was outnumber 55 to a few thousand and within a few weeks he took back the city. What daring. . .
As far as military genius I am leaning toward Alexander and Napoleon. I am going to study the amount of victories and the odds and then post an answer.
