    And he had better grooming habits than Attila.
    That's not saying much, so do I!

      Go Attila! He shaked Rome, he was much more a threat due to what he had and his tactics then Ike to me. Come on Attila, one more round baby, one more round!!!
      yeah!

        This matchup is just too weird. I guess they were both extremely powerful leaders. Eisenhower and the strange situation at D-Day make me question his ability, and his 'allied victory' method was probably a good thing.

          Ike took Rome, and Paris and were it not for the politics of the time he would have taken Berlin.

                Attila get's my vote...
                He made the whole world tremble from his horse, defeating several tribes and armies by sheer tactical imagination and terror. As for Ike...well, he was allways behind his desk, playing "RISK" with those other political "grandees"...
                A man who fights a war behind his officedesk, will never get my vote...

                    As others have said, Ike was not there personally doing it all.

                    I also think the average person will know more about Ike then Attila, giving Ike the edge.
                    yeah!

                      .

                      But Attila was??? Of all the leaders in the total "March Offensive" how many were "doing it all"?

                          I'm going for the builder instead of the destroyer. Attlia comes across as the blunt force trauma specialist, Ike the calculating strategist. They each have their places, but in the end, I'm more for Ike's way of doing things... most of the time.
                          If voting could really change things, it would be illegal.

                            I guess Im the only one who took the History Channel's "Barbarian's" week to heart! Its probably true, I bet I would have voted Ike pre-Barbarians Week.
                            yeah!

                              A close run thing...but our modern hero has just enough punch to make it into round 3. The competition intensifies!

                              Ike, you may proceed to round 3.
