Who in your opinion was the greatest military leader of all times?

Here are a few ideas:

Gaius Iulius Caesar
William the Conqueror
Frederick Barbarossa
Richard the Lionheart
Philip Augustus
Genghis Khan
Horatio Nelson
Chester Nimitz

Alexander the Great

A little crazy, but fought with his troops (if my memory serves me)

William the Conqueror was hardly a great military leader, in comparison to Alexander the Great, Genghis Khan or Caesar.

Maybe Napoleon or the Duke of Wellington?

You forgot Philip of Macedon, father of Alexander the Great. He was a guy with one eye that managed to form up an army from the relitivly poor north of Greece and unify it with the south through force.

I would go with Alexander, if reports are accurate, he was able to bring out the best in his troops and was able to defeat forces who outnumbered him due to training and tactics

i would say napoleon, caesar, or alexander the great.

I think that Alexander the great was the greatest military leader of all time, followed by Ganghis Kahn, simply because they were not interested in just tmilitary things, and each made the places they conquered better alot of the time, and alexander let the peoples of the places he conquered keep there beliefs and didnt try to convert them.

Ghengis Khan (all 3 of them) is the worlds most succsesfull military leader.
