Ulysses S. Grant         (1822–1885)            
Stonewall Jackson        (1824-1863)



Currently this list contains 65 Military leaders throughout history.  I decided to make it Pre 20th century, because the majority of us know quite a bit about WWI/WWII military leaders to fill an entire survivor.  

The first phase of this survivor will begin with nominations.  When voting begins, there will be a total of 75 Leaders, and the survivor will last approximately 30 rounds.  Thus, 10 spots remain to be filled by nomination.  Any participants are free to pick military leaders [Pre-20th century] to fill the remaining ten slots.  

The process will go as follows; Each participant is free to nominate Military leaders they feel should be included.  If a participant chooses more than one military leader, they will make obvious what preference each leader is.  This process will take 24-48 hours, depending on how many people participate.  I will take every participants first preference [but withhold my right to deny a troll], and if less than ten people vote, I will begin taking second preferences starting with the oldest posts.  If this process does not provide ten leaders, I will add ten that you probably won't want Tongue

Example:

[1]  Nathanael Greene
[2]  Sulla

Gret, idea, great list ! Cheesy

The problem with these very ambitious survivors is that, after thinking a bit, I've more than 20 additional names Grin.

First, I must say that I'm not completely convinced by Wellington, Pizarro, Cortes and some of the 17th century, but it's your list Wink.

As for my own ideas (and given the fact Edu has already 2 great names)...
I have 2 problems: Achilles and Sun Tzu.
Sun Tzu was a general but more known as a theoretician. And Achilles is more a mythological so I guess we can't include him.

1. David (Wink)
2. Tokugawa Ieyasu (I think we need a Jap somewhere here)
3. Henri de La Tour d'Auvergne, viscount of Turenne (sorry, but I have a few French names, though great names)
4. Pierre Terrail, seigneur de Bayard ("Knight Bayard")
5. Darius I
6. Philip II Augustus
7. Alexander Nevsky
8. Clovis
9. Guan Yu
10. Mehmed II
11. Marcus Agrippa
12. Mithridates I
13. John III Sobieski
14. Bertrand du Guesclin
15. Wladyslaw II Jagiello
16. Yusuf Ibn Tashfin
17. Louis Davout
18. Edward III of England

I stop here. And, TBH, my first 12 are, I think, important ones; the others, I don't know in which order I should give them...
Anyway, it's already over your limit Wink.

18 nominations.. Jeez, I might as well have 100 on the list Tongue

I thought about Sun Tzu, but his actually Military record is somewhat of an unknown to history.  Plus, The Mikado pointed out if I counted him, I might as well count Machiavelli as well.  Which means I should also count Clausewitz in that case.

David was on my list of potentials, right next to Joshua so I'm glad you picked him.  Cortes took a relatively small force [even if he had guns] and conquered an entire people.  I wouldn't vote him to win, but I wanted some conquistadors in there for the period.  Basically, I tried to spread it out a little bit, because I could easily have picked leaders I really liked from America, Rome, and Greece alone.  Also, thanks for recommending another Japanese [Oda Nobunaga] is the only one currently on.  I'm not as knowledgeable with Asian military leaders as the other ones, so I was hoping someone would pick them.

Oups, I have missed your Oda Nobunaga Tongue

Anyway, keep the 2 of Edu and and the first 8 of my list and it will be OK Grin (though nr.9 to nr.12 are very interesting too !)
Unfortunately, I doubt anybody else will make proposals.

We'll see.
This post is a sort of "bump" after all Wink.

You can't edit your votes.  The Leader that is closest to being eliminated during a round (has the fourth most points) will have Immunity the next.  In the case of a tie, the earliest voter of the round in question (excluding myself), will choose between the Leaders tied.  

Round 1

In the first round you can cast the following eliminating votes: (7-5-3-2), or (10-5), or (12).  You have 4 points to keep a single leader (4), or to split (2-2), or (3-1).  We will eliminate 3 Leaders.

Most Points:  George Washington - 27

Regarded as the leader of the American Revolution, and the "Father of his country," George Washington was the Commander of the continental army.  It is said that as a fully uniformed George Washington was being praised by John Adams, he was humble and noticeably weary of his ability to perform such a task as defying British rule.  To the historians that have written about him, this was his way.  Privately he sought grandeur with great ambition, and through his humble demeanor, he found he could achieve it. 

The leadership skills of Washington are perhaps second to none in American history.  The dedication he had for the cause, and more importantly his men, frequently kept the continental army together.  His biggest problem lay in his rather average ability as a tactician and strategist.  Though during the Revolution he showed he was more able, one only has to look at his record during the French and Indian War to see some major flaws.

Washington was the type of commander that kept the army from dissolving within, while his closest advisers kept the British at bay.  Troubled by hardship, and distraught from betrayal, Washington is seen as the American Commander who triumphed in spite of unlikely odds.

See:  George Washington - James Burns
See:  Meet George Washington



Washington   27
Pizarro          21
Vlad III         13




Winfield Scott  4       Immune
   
Wellington       0
Fabius            -1
Wallenstein    -1
Pyrrhus          -2
Skanderbeg   -2
Lee                -3


Adding a brief summary.  We'll see how long that lasts Tongue

Most Points:  Hernán Cortés - 24

Spanish Conquistador, and conqueror of the Aztecs;  Hernán Cortés is perhaps the most famous conquistador, and one that helped fire the need for colonization in the Americas.  Cortés, with less than 1000 men, is noted in history as bringing about the collapse of the Aztec Empire.  Despite being far better armed than their enemy, the men led by Cortés are held by some as having achieved great success against a far greater numbered opponent.  However, it was not by the pure military success of Cortés that saw the end of such an Empire.

It could be strongly argued that the Aztec Empire made a monumental oversight that lead to its own collapse.  It was after all, not Cortés alone that conquered them but the aided assistance of Aztec neighbors [specifically Tlaxcala].  For years, the Aztecs forced their neighbors into alliances.  Alliances, which did quell warfare, but demanded sacrificial payment in return.  Instead of building strong alliances through protection, titles, and benefits [Like Romans used citizenship], the Aztec Empire did very well in creating resentment among their "allies" and neighbors.  Thus, when Cortés arrived, little persuasion was neccessary to turn the tables on the regions greatest Empire.  The Aztec Empire, through forcing unsettling alliances, doomed itself.

Hernán Cortés could have very well been absent from school children's history books.  A lasting feud between the conquistador and the Governor of Cuba, nearly ended the conquest before it began.  An order from his rival could have prevented Cortés expedition, but instead, such order was ignored.  Later, after fighting off arrest, Cortés asked for, and received titles for his successes, despite his previous refusal to adhere to orders.  Though his military leadership may not be among histories higher echelon, his ability to use the native people for military benefit remains exemplary.

See:  Sun Tzu and the Art of Modern Warfare - Mark Mcneilly
See:  BBC: Brief History of Cortés

Hernán Cortés   24
Wellington         18
Cromwell           13




Aurelian                                  9        Immune
John Churchill                         7
Richard the Lionheart             5
Albrecht von Wallenstein        3
Garabaldi                                3
Pyrrhus of Epirus                    2
Alaric                                      -2
William Tecumseh Sherman    -6

I'm only taking about 10 minutes to write these descriptions but, if you don't like my quick style of summarizing let me know [If you bother to read them] and I'll just put the votes down and forgo the writing Cheesy
