Being a military commander is one of the most stressful and high-stakes positions out there. You’re in charge of other people’s lives and the outcome of a battle depends on your decisions and ability to lead. Many of the greatest commanders fight alongside their soldiers to boost morale and provide support, putting their own lives on the line. Whether they were giving orders with spears in-hand or assault rifles against their shoulders, these are the military commanders throughout history who never suffered a loss.
Alexander The Great Created The Greatest Empire In The World
Alexander the Great is one of the most renowned ancient military generals, if not of all time. He inherited the throne of Macedonia when he was just 20-years-old, and spent the majority of his rather short life conquering a massive percentage of the known world. During his military conquests, he conquered Greece and the Balkans, as well as Asia, Egypt, and India.
By the time of his death, he had created the greatest empire the world had ever seen. A few of his most memorable victories included the battles of Issus and Gaugamela in which he secured Persia. Dying from an illness at age 33, he had never lost a battle.
