Let's get some history debate going. I fully expect a lot of uneducated crap but whatever, better than nothing.

Vote.

Wow of course I screwed the poll up. It should say 1940, obviously.

I also said Germany instead of Wehrmacht because plebs.

Germany played in a weak era but their performance vs. Russia was truely impressive.

Going for the Grand Armee, Germany Army circa 1914-18 beats both of them, WW1 was the true strong era of European Warfare, granted the 30 Years War was pretty decent too

also, Napoleon > Hitler.

The Red Army that pushed out Germany in the 1940's and smashed Eastern Europe is best of the last 100 years.

As to the poll, I would say Napoleon mainly because at school they were wax-lyrical about his greatness :p

Rubbish, far too over reliant on bloody armoured thrusts that relied on sheer numbers than tactical superiority

Simo Häyhä. :worship::worship::worship::worship:

I vote for Charles Martel's army at Tours, simply for the glory of expelling the demonic Mahometan invaders from Western Europe. He is the kebab removal GOAT.

Not really. They had the numbers, but Stalin tried to push a technologically primitive military on a much more developed world, and a huge percentage of the army died even if the result (the end of Fascism) was one that rocked the world.

^ Indeed, the coolest (pun unintended) performance of any army during WW2 was the Finns in the Winter War vs Russia imo.
Their fight was really quite 300-esque, defending their country for much longer than expected, fighting furiously against a much bigger enemy force.

This! if not disgusting Yankees with their business (even for now USA realizes that WAR in Eurasia, Africa or any place miles away from NA = BIG MONEY for them), Germany would have dominate whole old world...
