    This is a no brainer - Gustavus wins as the best general of the world's most horrific war, defeating opponents of certifiable worth, and saving the world from another age of darkness.

    I can't believe the overrated Saladin made it this far. Adolphus for me.

    extremely tough one for me as i admire both extensively; yet will go for the Great King of Sweden, because of the impact he had on western military science and developement, that would be emulated by the masters who followed him in Europe.

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

    Saladin

    Salahuddin Al-Ayyubi known also as Saladin or Salah al-Din Yusuf (c. 1138 - March 4, 1193), Sultan of Egypt and Syria, was a 12th-century Kurdish[1][2][3] Muslim general and warrior from Tikrit, in present day northern Iraq. He founded the Ayyubid dynasty of Egypt, Syria, Yemen (except for the Northern Mountains), Mesopotamia, Mecca, Hejaz and Diyar Bakr. Although he is known worldwide as Saladin, his given name was Yusuf--an Arabic equivalent to the English name "Joseph."[4]

    Gustavus Adolphus

    As a general, Gustav Adolf is famous for employing mobile artillery on the battlefield, as well as very aggressive tactics, where attack was stressed over defense and mobility emphasized over the usual linear tactics. His musketeers were widely known for their shooting accuracy and reload speed, three times faster than any contemporary rivals. Carl von Clausewitz and Napoleon Bonaparte considered him one of the greatest generals of all time. He was famed for consistency of purpose, and amity with his troops.
