    I ask because it's usually something like that which causes outbursts like this, needless to say I dissagree completely.

    Wow, looks like Gustavus is really going to run away with this bracket. No one else is even close.
    It is better to conquer yourself than to win a thousand battles. Then, the victory is yours. It cannot be taken from you, not by angels or by demons, heaven or hell.

    I just don't see Charles XII edging out Cromwell. Put 'em head to head and I see Cromwell winning 3 outa 5.

    My picks

    Gustavus Adolphus - great reformer, king, less skilled general, but should get to the next round.

    Jan Sobieski - brillian tactician and strategist, good reformer, worse politician.

    Wallenstein - de facto created the term 'modern warfare'. Excelent in actually winning a war, not just some battles.

    Oda Nobunaga - hard choice, but at least one Japanese warlord should go further.


    The rest is either too foolish ( Charles XII), less spectacular ( Maurice of Nassau), or too overrated ( Cromwell) to count.

    It is a pity no French general came through, but it is all a popularity contest to some people - the most 'sexy' general wins.

    It would be better if only people with decent knowledge decided to vote at all.
