Mustafa Kemal Atatürk (1881 – November 10, 1938) was an army officer, revolutionary statesman, the founder of the Republic of Turkey and its first President. Mustafa Kemal established himself as a successful military commander while serving as a division commander in the Battle of Gallipoli of World War I. Following the defeat of the Ottoman Empire at the hands of the Allies, and the subsequent plans for its partition, Mustafa Kemal led the Turkish national movement in what would become the Turkish War of Independence. His successful military campaigns led to the liberation of the country and the establishment of the Republic of Turkey. Mustafa Kemal implemented what are known as Atatürk's Reforms which led to sweeping changes in the political, economic and cultural sphere of the Kemalist state, striving to create a modern, democratic and secular state based on Western principles of governance.

Wrong. Khalid ibn al Waleed, Drawn Sword of Allah was the second man to ever use the double envelopment manuever to kill to the last man the opposing army. At the battle of Walaja he had 15,000 and killed somewhere between 30-50,000 men. Not only that, but like Hannibal he was able to come up with this strategy on his own, no books, just ingenuity. The enemy was also one of the largest empires of the time, the Sacanian empire, so it was comparable to the opposition that Hannibal faced. Also in his first battle, the battle of mu'tah the odds were 6,000 to 200,000. The fighting was so intense that the first 3 leaders of the Muslim army were killed, and then Khalid was give command. Khalid himself may very well be the greatest warrior ever b/c throughout the battle he had personally broken 9 swords, thus people started calling him the sword of allah. Then through the use of a startegem, he was able to make the entire 200,000 army retreat making them believe that reinforcments had come. His personal battle record was over a 100 battles won, and 1 tie.
