Mahirap 'to. Depende kasi sa era ng warfare e.

Sa WW II warfare na lang muna ako hihirit. Yung Lt. na naging major at battalion commander ng 101st airborne sa Band of Brothers, si Richard Winters.

Tama ka diyan brad. Ako wala ako masyadong hilig sa mga gera na may baril na na involved. Swordplay is much better :P

Tactically, I would say Leonidas and Maximus with an equal amount of forces would be a joy to watch.

In a one on one match with no given preparation, I would say Achilles.

In a one on one match with a good amount of time for preparation, I would say Leonidas or Maximus.

HMMM Obi Wan is a general din ba. Pero masyado na malalakas ang StarWars characters for comparison.

In the Greek era - Odysseus
In the Napoleonic era - Richard Sharpe
In Middle Earth - Boromir

Why? Because they're all played by Sean Bean :)

for me - its General "Blood and Guts "Patton and the Desert Fox Erwin Rommel.

sa ancient warriors naman...the best na si Alexander the Great.

One on One combat = Achilles. The man cannot be hurt, even if you did know his weak spot, you'd be dead before you even hit it.

General - Alexander the Great. the best field commander the world has ever known. Conquered most of the known world, if he had pushed through with India he could have cirled the globe and conquered all.

Lugi, si Achilles may pagka-God.

IMO, King Leonidas. He is blood thirsty to perfection. He won't surrender even if it meant his family would be sacrificed.

McCleod would get beat down by achilles with one hand tied behind his back.

and he's no good without his sword.

Conan would tear him apart.

---------

on that note, i change my answer from Achilles to Conan:

"Conan, what is best in life?"

"To defeat your enemies,
to see them driven before you,
and to hear the lamentations of their women"

In terms of Area conquered, Temujin (Genghis Khan) was the most successful conqueror in history.. but his empire didn't last after his death.
Also the quote used by Conan in the Arnold Schwarzenegger movie was first said by Temujin

I think it's Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower. Why? He was not a primadonna like McArthur and Field Marshall Montgomery (who trashed Rommel in Africa) but was able to hold together both of them to work well (one in Europe, the other one in Asia).
As a leader, not just a general, he has worked to get all the necessary resources to get the job done (unlike the smartasses in the Petagon right now), and manage a team of talented but dickheads like Monty, Patton and Charles De Gaulle.

And please let's not include Conan nor Aragorn and all those fictional characters. I could there them to shreds, literally, I could shred my DVDs and beta max tapes :P
