A Student of History

Vote for your commander!

Filed under: Wars,What is History? — John Maass @ 7:56 pm

At The History Net, a website devoted to trying to sell us subscriptions to non-academic/serious research magazines, they have a poll I find a bit amusing/interesting. 

“Which General would you have liked to serve with?” they ask in an unscientific poll, as if you’d have had the choice or as a private, it would have meant something different to have been killed while in Robert E. Lee’s army as opposed to that of Alexander.

Anyway, just for fun, you get the “choice” of Lee, Alexander, Napoleon, Caesar, Hannibal, Genghis Khan, and Patton.  Who “won”?

I won’t spoil it for you if you plan to “vote,” but it was not surprising to me.
