George Washington named Britain's greatest ever foe

The American was voted the winner in a contest run by the National Army Museum to identify the country's most outstanding military opponent.

He was one of a shortlist of five leaders who topped a public poll and on Saturday was selected as the ultimate winner by an audience of around 70 guests at a special event at the museum, in Chelsea, west London.

In second place was Michael Collins, the Irish leader, ahead of Napoleon Bonaparte, Erwin Rommel and Mustafa Kemal Atatürk.

Yes, U.S. Grant did forge ahead, but his men respected him for it, if blood be spilled let it be in victory rather than numerous defeats.
Theodore Roosevelt wrote:
Neither was it an accident that our three leaders [Washington, Lincoln, Grant] were men who, while they did not shrink from war, were nevertheless heartily men of peace. The man who will not fight to avert or undo wrong is but a poor creature; but, after all, he is less dangerous than the man who fights on the side of wrong. Again and again in a nation's history the time may, and indeed sometimes must, come when the nation's highest duty is war. But peace must be the normal condition, or the nation will come to a bloody doom.
excerpt from, Grant's Genius.

I should have read the article. I now vote for Grant and Lee over any foreign military leader (in response to SJ John's post)
The Civil War actually did cross my mind but I settled on a foreign leader.

Still, your observation does fit the template that we are often our own worst enemy when it comes to implementing public policy

FYI - Hitler does not count, only battlefield commanders are allowed. You need to apply this to your own suggestions too.
"To qualify, each commander had to come from the 17th century onwards – the period covered by the museum's collection – and had to have led an army in the field against the British, thus excluding political enemies, like Adolf Hitler. "
Suggestion: Isaac Brock.

It's a bit of a long shot John, but ...
that little word War that you used kind of makes me suspect that they did not think that GW was the moral wonder of the world.

While James Kennedy was not perfect in theology, I'm glad to hear that you are at least not listening to Bishop Sheen tapes.

Now, if you look at the date of this article, and bring up the original article, you will see it was over 100 years old. This girl however was not diplomatic. Calls Washington Traitor.; British Miss in an Omaha School Stirs Up Trouble. I can guarantee you that British historians and many other Britons do not have an overabundance of fond feelings for our founding fathers. (Oh, ^o) )

I would probably have to vote for Fidel Castro for his longevity even though Tojo's forces killed more of our fighting men than any other world leader I can think of.

Bin Laden would probably win the poll since he is our most recent greatest adversary.

John Y., I'm sure there was some person of note in the British power structure that had a few nasty words for George. He was a traitor in their eyes. Of course there were quite a few freemasons in the British leadership--besides Anglicans, so they would have a certain amount of respect for him.
He was the best man for the job in leading the Colonial Army. He also was an excellent pick to be our first President besides. He should almost be considered a hero among the British, since he helped to get rid of those pesky colonies. Great Britain got all the financial benefits of file having to pay for their defense anymore.
