I am not so sure about Hitler, being a great leader.. Yes he did turn his country around after the Great war, but he created jobs and rebuilt
infrastructure to start ww2, which he failed miserably in. As far as a strategic mind, ahem, Operation Barbarossa, was his mastermind, which was a
complete failure, he lacked the patients in Great Britain, and I also have not seen the name CHURCHILL, come up in this thread, Lemme tell you
something as far as leadership, this rags to riches man, has to be one of the greatest leaders, ever.. I mean ever, ever... He was a drunk also by the
Did you know during world war 2, the brits were short on guns, yep that is right, they were out gunned, some of their soldiers did not have guns, the
United states initiated a lend lease program, selling Russia, and Brittain weapons and equipment..
Anyhow I do not agree with Hitler being the greatest, only reason that country rebounded into a working country was because they were making guns and
tanks LOL and infrastructure in the 30's.
leaders of Armies, I would say Alexander the great, for sure..
Leaders of Men, I would say Washington.. He did warn us of a two partied system.
Queen Elizabeth, she defeated the Spanish, Armada, and Spain, was never the same again.. She was a woman.. Men followed her, in the middle ages, she
is one of the strongest women, in History, and Today no woman, has come close to her achievements.
Christopher Columbus, I don't need to explain that.. He changed history..
Their are not to many great leaders, this sums up for me who come to mind..
I am sure their are others..
