Top 10 Most Dangerous Warriors/Armies of All Time

This is a top 10 list of the most skilled and impressive military forces. No force was admitted if it's not acknowledged by the government. The selected force has to have a verity of skill sets and knowledge. This is the reason for the Green Berets, British SAS, and Delta Force not being admitted to the list, for the Green Berets and British SAS are focused on anti-terrorism and unconventional warfare. Delta Force isn't acknowledged by the U.S. Government.

The Top Ten

1 The Roman Legionaries

The Roman Legionaries were the basic unit the Roman Army used. The Romans basically ran the world for hundreds of years. These troops were heavily disciplined and used the unique tortoise formation quite often. The Roman Legionaries are amongst the best fighters in history.

I like turtles

Probably the top three you don't want to mess with are the Romans, the Mongols, and the Spartans. Israelis and the modern Chinese come in close to those. - JustAnAccount

2 The Spartans

These soldiers should be number 1. They were simply bred to fight and die and would take apart the three groups above them if they were still around.

Legendary warriors. Lived to train and fight. Ancient elite special forces.

Should be higher then the roman legionnaires

Should be first. Their whole reason to keep living was to die a honorable death in battle. The Spartan families threw them out of home for military training when theyreached the age of seven.

7 Templar Knights and Crusaders

The Crusaders controlled parts of the Middle East, Israel, Europe, The Holy Roman Empire, and The Byzantine Empire. The Templar Knights were elite knights. It is said they feared neither man nor demon.

8 German Empire Army
9 U.S. Navy Seal

The Navy Seals are definitely the most impressive military force to date. They go through intense training and preform elite missions. The Navy Seals have taken out terrorist leaders and other essential targets. The Navy Seals are truly deserving of the #1 rank on this list.

You think 10 roman legionaries would beat 10 Navy Seals? Literally the Navy seals could just shoot them. Its asking for the greatest ever, not the greatest of its time.

This of waste

I'm suprized there isn't 10 of them behind plus Nazi equils seal

These troops are a great modern soldier. They have survival, intelligence, and combat skills. The variety of skills these troops have is undeniably useful.

13 Ancient Samurai

The Ancient Samurai are probably the best ancient military on this list. They devoted there lives to fighting, following the Bushido or "way of the warrior". The Samurai believed in honor till death.
