    I agree Genghis Khan united Mongolia and was a superb leader. Napoleon and his hero Alexander the great are also strong contenders. But i would have to say that Attila the Hun would be my favourite leader a man who could be the thorn in the the side of the great Roman empire must be a great leader.
    ya…Attila is not a bad choice but Napoleon, Alexander and Genghis Khan conquer more territtory.
    No one talk about the viking….

    Yeah, except, unlike Genghis Khan or Alexander, Napoleon fought wars of defensive nature, not wars of conquest.

    They were both. No matter how nice he was to the conquered peoples and no matter how good his intentions were, he still conquered countries. Just like Britain conquered Canada in 1763. They treated the people well(especially after lessons learned by the American War for Independence), but they still conquered Canada(or the part of it along the St. Lawrence River; the Area around Hudson’s Bay was already British)

    Oh no, I’m not denying that. It’s just that Genghis Khan and Alexander fought wars purely out of a lust for land and military conquest, much unlike Napoleon.

    Okay, that clears up the misunderstanding

    You hold a bridge for 4 days with 1 battalion of men, short on ammunition and supplies, while you get attacked by Tigers and a whole host of ungodly Nazi vehicles and men. I dare you.
