War has left a stain on human history and although many of them were unavoidable, they were responsible for making the world what it is today. Nearly every country has engaged in this gruesome act; some of which remained in the country, and others involving more than one country. No matter the status of sides involves, there was always someone or a group of people at the forefront, with the intention to lead their army to victory.

Perhaps one of the most controversial figures is Adolf Hitler, who led the German Nazi Party and its Armed Forces into battle during World War II. Another is the Greek King, Alexander the Great, who, up until his assassination, was undefeated in every battle he participated in. If we look back to the Eastern Han Dynasty, there is the Chinese warlord Cao Cao, who was regarded as a military genius.

Not every military leader fought for power, some fought for the rights of their people such as Sitting Bull, a Native American chief, and Joan of Arc, who played a crucial role in the Hundred Years’ War between the French and English.
