The Contenders: Page 7

121 Mao Zedong Mao Zedong Mao Zedong, also transliterated as Mao Tse-tung and commonly referred to as Chairman Mao, was a Chinese communist revolutionary and founding father of the People's Republic of China, which he governed as Chairman of the Communist Party of China from its establishment in 1949, until his death in 1976. more.

Worse than stalin, the lowest of the lows, this man wasnt a general, he was a psychopath, he enjoyed nothing more than seeing men in pain, often personally watching tortures or having it recorded for his viewing pleasure.

Beaten Nationalists, Japanese, Americans, and Viets all in one lifetime.. He did more good than harm. China always adapts to survive.

The leader that faced impossibly.

122 Qasem Soleimani

He is my idol

Bigest Middle East general in all time after greatest korosh

He is so smart and brave like all Iranians.he is the hero that beat the dirty Isis

He is very very great man.
He is son of the shia
he is ISIS Killer.

123 Liu Yu

He defeat all Chinese at this period

124 Paul von Lettow-Vorbeck

He was the only commander to last the entire second world war without losing a single confrontation - and he was fighting for the side that lost the war.

Incredible German commander, blessed with not only tactical brilliance but integrity. Cared very strongly for the men in his command.

I voted him because Alexander Suvarov was not listed

Highly outnumbered 1vs20 - still has last to the end of war - truly never lost a battle

128 Gwanggaeto the Great

Gwanggaeto the Great is probably one of the greatest generals of all time. He was extremely smart and was able to conquer a huge amount of land. Not only that, he was probably one of the greatest rulers of Goguryeo, which was a kingdom so strong that it was continuously able to defeat China over several Chinese dynasties, and was only defeated when the kingdom was split up and China allied itself with Shilla to attack it.

Two kings in Korean history are known as the great. The first is Sejong the Great for obvious reasons. The next is Gwanggaeto who subdued nearly the entire Korean Peninsula, destroyed the Wa, annhilated Buyeo, conquered the Liaodong Peninsula, and conquered parts of Manchuria.

129 Richard I of England

He alone was almost as successful as the first crusade the only good one mind you with a fifth the manpower fighting a united Islam

Not a good king but a superb military commander, especially with his successes against Saladin on the Third Crusade such as the battles of Arsuf and Jaffa.

130 Tipu Sultan

One of the few who stood against the many

"1 day of a lion is better than 100 years of jaguar" was his last saying

Georgian king of Kartli (Georgia) from 1556 to 1569 and again from 1578 to 1599. He spent most of his reign in an incessant war against the Persian and Ottoman domination of Georgia. He won with small army many battle against the Persian and Ottoman.

133 Ivan the Terrible Ivan the Terrible

Best ever ruler


Ivan was a man with great power and a great tacticus he was nice people. He is not the most known one but the terriblest man

134 Mihai Viteazul (Michael the Brave)

The greatest Romanian ever!

He literly almost destroyed the Ottamon empire and he united Transylvania, Moldavia and Wallachia to form Romania for only one year and at night in his tent he got his head cut off by a Hungarian and a Turk. He was fighting against 3 countrys at the same time in 1600 the Ottoman Empire, the Austro-Hungarian Empire and Germany at the same time and he won but died to protect Romania. I'm a Romanian and I'm Proud

135 Jan III Sobieski V 4 Comments
136 Michiel de Ruyter

He was able to oversee huge battles with hundreds of ships involved. And he always made the right decisions. Famous, feared, honored and respected by friend and foe. When he was fatally injured in battle his French enemies stopped fighting out of respect to this great admiral.

The greatest naval commander of all time. At least in the age of sail. He dominated the seas in the 17th century by using revolutionary tactics, manouverability, effectiveness and extraordinary courage.
He is most famous for his battles against England in the 'Anglo-Dutch wars of the 17th century'. He even defeated a combined fleet of the two greatest powers in the world at the time; France and England, who had twice as many ships as the Dutch.
A great man winning victory after victory against all odds, placing him among the greatest commanders of all time.

He was just great

He was great!
If he got defeated earlier, or if he failed all battles, then The Netherlands would be an English, German or French state. - Kiyomi

137 Gonzalo Fernández de Córdoba

It is a shame that Spanish generals are completely ignored, considering their importance and achievements are larger and more crucial than many others in the list. Real knowledge of history is clearly a problem.

Can't believe there's so few Spanish generals on this...

Created the Spanish Tercio, which was well-nigh invincible for many years, and his tactics served as templates for future renaissance generals.

Best general ever
