There are so many people for one to admire over the course of history, but could you pick just one? Now there are many people that I could pick such as Martin Luther King, a man that stood for equality and fought for it with peace. Or I could pick General George S. Patton Jr. A man that was hell bent on winning World War II at any means. If I had to pick one person over the course of history, it is a man whose name in the great book of history is quite small.

http://en.wikipedia.org...

This man led 450 men against around 1,600 PAVN and NVA in The Battle of Ia Drang on November 14, 1965 to November 18, 1965 it was the first major battle of the Vietnam war and the first time the Huey was used in combat after the Calvary was given helicopters instead of horses.

http://en.wikipedia.org...

Here is the movie version of his speech he gave to the 7th Calvary before they left.

So if you could pick one person over the course of history, who would you pick?

Cool. I would say Emilio Aguinaldo. He's fvcking badass. He led the battles in the Philippines against Spanish imperialists in the 1890s, American imperialists in the 1900s, and Japanese imperialists in the 1940s.

I'm quite impressed by Thomas Paine's marriage of intellect and action, although it would be a Cardinal Sin of omission not to mention Ghaffar Khan.

Napoleon. As the Duke of Wellington said when asked of who was the better commander, "In this age, in past ages, in any age, Napoleon."
