    Adolphus has got my vote because of the impact he had on western military science and developement. His field artillery just kicked ass!

    When considering the great captains of history, Napoleon put Adolphus in the list right after the greats of ancient times. It's a no-brainer here.

    Adolphus for me, he invented tactics that would be used by military powers until WW I

    I voted for Saladin in the last two rounds because he was the better general. This round im voting for Adolphus because i feel he is a better general than Saladin. It has nothing to do with race or skin color or the current war in Iraq.

    Saladin got different tribes to unite because he was a conquerer of many tribes. Gustavus got different States to work together because of his victories against the common enemy.

    I still think Saladin should win, but I have no hard feelings if he looses to a worthy adversary like Adolphus.

    Just saying.

    Okay........

    Adolphus all the way for this one. Salah ad-Din had his accomplishments, and he should be properly credited for them. But Gustavus II Adolphus is sooo far above him. Adolphus, I would go so far to say, was probably the best commander of his time. We, today, have much to thank the Lion of the North for. His victories in the 30 Years War ensured that the Catholics would never again be able to try to reverse what Luther and Calvin started. And his military innovations laid the foundations for modern warfare.

    Common guys there's still time to correct this wrong doing on Saladin.
    I recon Adolphus was a great commander but Saladin's qualities should garantee him victory on this one.
    It was no easy task to command so many diferent tribes and keep the Holy Land from the constant assaults of some of Europe's finest forces. Saladin was cunning and he knew when to be mercyfull and when to be roughtless in order to conquer everyone's respect, enemies included.

    I actually picked these two to get this far... the only battle my simple mind was able to pick right...

    I orignially picked Saladin to win this one - and I'm having second thoughts... it's so close that I'm going to flip a coin... Saladin wins...

    I do have one Saladin quote to share... "ALALALALALALALALALALALALALA"
