Re: Enemy Commanders: Britain’s Greatest Foes

Well..Mustafa Kemal Atatürk is one of the people responsible for the spreading of and unification of power that Muslims have today. So i can understand that, however id probably vote Michael Collins, considering how Ireland is still a boiling shit hole of arguments nearly a hundred years after his death.

All of them were a big pain in the arse.

Didn't stop us from smashing them back into the hole they crawled out from.

from one of the posts in the link

Ireland's Michael Collins. Unlike leaders of large, well equipped armies, Collins almost single-handedly organised the remnants of a crushed rebellion into such an effective guerilla force that the greatest empire of modern times was forced to sue for peace. Who else ever matched that?
