If not the Greatest General who ever graced a battlefield. With around 100 victory's This man went from victory to victory and became a Living legend in his time, feared by Romans and Persians alike this man was something to be respected in times of war. They call him the man who Re-Wrote the art of war, Totaly going against the standard 5:1 ratio generals used when directing any form of siege assault. When the odd's were stacked against him he showed no fear and fought on-wards to claim victory. A man who gave away his spoils of war to the widows and orphans. A man who was not fighting for the sake of money and material wealth.
