Re: Top 10 greatest military leaders of all time

Karl, Rommel was a legend and deserves a place in the top 10. Other generals might have been more capable but ask yourself how many people know Manstein? How many people know Rommel? Bismarck wasn't the largest nor the most powerful either still is considered the greatest by many. Same with Rommel. ...

Re: Don't be fooled about the Tiger

Using a tank for infantry support is WWI thinking. In WWII tanks were grouped in divisions and fought as an independent arm.
