The bravest, competent and deadliest warriors from the history of the world. If it is what made you come here, then be confident that you are in the right place.
What describes the best warrior?
The best warrior is the one who instils fear among his rivals and the one to whom only bravery describes victory, not the material.
History has experienced many brave soldiers but not all are remembered today. This is because only bravery does not define competence.
It is the tactic and strategy the differentiate the best warriors from the brave warriors.
To understand this concept, let’s look at some most powerful (certainly dangerous) warriors from the history:
The most deadliest warriors throughout history:
- Simo Hahya: This warrior is known to be the best sniper that history has ever witnessed.
‘The White Death’ is believed to have killed 500 men equipped with rifles over a course of winter war that lasted for around 100 days.
However, what made him dangerous were his strategies.
He used to camouflage in the snow and held snow in his mouth in order that his breaths could not be detected.
Similarly, his various other tactics made it almost impossible to detect his place.
- Horatius Cocles: He was a Roman soldier who earned fame when he protected the bridge across the Tiber when it was attacked by Etruscans.
Historians have written several hundred pages on his bravery and competence.
What made him dangerous for his enemies was his determination to fight until the end.
- Vercingetorix: He is the national hero of France who was able to unite several Celtic tribes in order to compete with the fierce Romans. This shows his competence, but how?
He united the Celtic tribes very cleverly.
This played a major part in his efforts. However, Vercingetorix surrendered in the Battle of Alesia.
- Gulvarnio: He was the man who loved to stab his enemies. When he was caught by the Spanish troops, both of his hands were cut off.
The main point to ponder upon is his dedication.
- Alexander the Great: This would not be the first time you would have listening to this name.
He was the man who conquered almost all over the world because of his bravery and combat qualities.
- Khalid bin Waleed: He was a Muslim soldier that is known for his tactics.
He never hesitated to fight with armies that were much larger than him in number.
He always desired the rank of martyrdom (to die while fighting in the way of God) but unfortunately, he died naturally even though he did spend more than half of his life on the battlefield.
- Genghis Khan: This man is known as the ‘Mongol destroyer’. It is believed that he conquered 1/4 of the entire world.
He was a fearless soldier who never hesitated to give severe punishments to his people if they committed any sort of crime. It is believed that he headed almost 40 million people!
- Ashoka: He was also known as the ‘Ashoka the Great.
The real reason for his fame was his cruelty which later changed into an effective political government.
Ashoka waged destructive combat with the state, Kalinga and soon after this, he converted to Buddhism.
- Shivaji Rao: He was the founder of guerilla warfare and it was a ferocious marathon military leader. The Marathas were a dominant body of South-East India that had instilled terror among his rivals.
He gave a tough time to almost all the ruling forces of the Indian Subcontinent. These include the Mughals, Persians, Afghans, British and many others.
Even when his enemies outnumbered him and had an upper hand in terms of arms and ammunition, he remained at the front, proving himself as an able commander.
- Hannibal: He is surely one of the greatest warriors that have ever lived.
The reason for his fame was marching with elephants at the beginning of the second Punic War.
