It's one thing to be really good at strategy in a board game like "Risk" or a video game like "Civilization," but it's a completely different thing to lead a massive military into battle in the real world. The commanders who await you at the end of this quiz are truly the greatest of all time.
Many of them went undefeated in their career, and all of them made their unique mark on the history of the world. The largest territories to ever be occupied by single nations are generally due to the mastery of these masters of the battlefield.
Some of these great conquerors were vicious and ruthless warriors whose reputation spread far and wide for the brutal way in which they dealt with their enemies. Others were expert tacticians who studied the great military leaders of the past and put that knowledge to very good use in out-maneuvering the other side.
Each one had a style that was distinct, a pattern of behavior and a personality that set them apart from the rest. Let's prepare for battle. Will you be observing the battle from a nearby hill, or will you be joining your men on the front lines of the war? That decision will tell us a lot about which commander you most resemble.
