  • Alexander the Great vs. Napoleon (Round IV)

    Here are some facts for each player to help you in your voting (From Wikipedia):

    Alexander the Great (July 20 356 BC–June 10, 323 BC), also known as Alexander III, king of Macedon (336–323 BC), was one of the most successful military commanders in history. The name 'Alexander' derives from the Greek words "alexo" (αλέξω, refuge, defense, protection) and "aner" (ανήρ, man). Before his death, he conquered most of the world known to the ancient Greeks. Alexander is also known in the Zoroastrian Middle Persian work Arda Wiraz Nāmag as "the accursed Alexander" due to his conquest of the Persian Empire and the destruction of its capital Persepolis. He is known as Eskandar-e Maqduni (Alexander of Macedonia) in Persian, Al-Iskander Al-Makadoni (Alexander of Macedonia) in Arabic, Alexander Mokdon in Hebrew, and Tre-Qarnayia in Aramaic (the two-horned one, apparently due to an image on coins minted during his rule that seemingly depicted him with the two ram's horns of the Egyptian god Ammon), al-Iskandar al-Akbar الاسكندر الاكبر in Arabic, Sikandar-e-azam in Urdu, Skandar in Pashto. Sikandar, his name in Urdu and Hindi, is also a term used as a synonym for "expert" or "extremely skilled".

He was a general during the French Revolution, the ruler of France as Premier Consul of the French Republic, Empereur des Français, King of Italy, Mediator of the Swiss Confederation and Protector of the Confederation of the Rhine.

                  You still haven't studied Alex's campaigns, and Napoleon also inhierited a reformed army.

                      A reformed army in bad shape.

                        Actually, I have. I hope you did post-grad courses on ancient warfare too, with a professor who specialized in the ancient Greek army, so that you actually have some basis for making a claim like that.

                              Then why have you been hiding your light under a bushel? All you have discussed about Alexander have been the battles against the Persians.I've mentioned his actions in the mountains, on ther steppes and in India and you never commented one way or the other. I even mentioned how his crossing a guarded river is still studied and you didn't say, well, it wasn't that impressive and here's why.
