    After much thought .... and because I've always thought he had a brilliant mind ... ( his ideas are still being used and copied today ) ..... I nominate ......

    Napoleon Bonaparte Emperor of France 1769 - 1821

    One of the most brilliant individuals in history - Napoleon Bonaparte was a masterful soldier - an unequalled grand tactician and a superb administrator. He was also utterly ruthless - a dictator and later in his career - thought he could do no wrong !

    I'll go for Hannibal of Carthage. He nearly brought down the Roman Empire before it became much of an empire.

    The Battle of Cannae is still taught in military schools today.
