About This Quiz

Sadly, for as long as there have been human beings, there's been war. And as much as we might say, "War ... what is it good for?" the truth is that many military leaders have become highly-regarded heroes, or risen to become civilian leaders after the war is over. Just think of Ulysses S. Grant or Dwight "Ike" Eisenhower.

For these reasons, many people who have never put on a uniform look to military tactics and leaders for inspiration. Many a corporate boardroom is nicknamed "the war room," and in locker rooms, coaches use stories of pitched battles and impossible victories to inspire teams. Not to mention those Casanovas and coquettes who see love itself as a matter of tactics and strategy. 

Do you have a particular general, admiral, or rebel leader who inspires you? Or perhaps you'd like to know which one you most resemble. We've created a quiz to help you figure it out. For this quiz, we haven't just used generals from U.S. history, but also historical leaders whose feats have stood the test of time. Just answer from your heart, or gut, and let the chips fall where they may!
