  • The 100 Generals (now 32) Contest [brackets available - voting Feb 25]

    We've trimmed down the field to the 32 best generals (or at least those who are readers have selected as the best). Next step is to send them into head to head combat via our bracket tournament system. We will have this ready to go on Wednesday (Feb. 20 -- Delayed to Feb 25 to give everyone a chance to fill in brackets). We are going to seed them based on the number of votes from these first polls.

    We'll try to have the brackets listed before then for discussion.

      It should be interesting to see the 32 chosen.

      Were they picked on popularity only? Or did our advocacy arguments have any effect on the outcome?

      Looking forward to an exciting campaign!

            Obviously, Napoleon will crush the competition.

              May be... But I think you should'nt undervalue Alexander (and Hannibal...)!

                Of course not. I voted for those two as well.

                  Gustav & Lee seem to be pretty popular as well.

                  This should be fun!

                    The Final Four

                    Early line on the final 4:

                    Napoleon
                    Caesar
                    Alexander
                    Genghis Kahn

                    Any other Final 4 Predictions?

                      I will wait to see the brackets before predicting a final four. That could affect things.

                        Brackets will be crucial. I hope the brackets allow the possibility of a final two fo Napoleon and Alexander, who are 1 and 1A IMHO.

                          I would add that Manstein or Rommel shoul be in the Final 4.....

                            I don't remember, but has Sam Houston EVER been nominated in any of these contests?

                              Delayed slightly while I try to get the brackets fixed in my other thread. If you are curious you can see the brackets there.
