Gen. Washington Kicks Rommel's Ass

Our limey brethren across the pond have voted on who was 'Britain’s Greatest Enemy Commander' and the winner is... George Washington.

Champion Brit Kicker
Winner, winner, chicken dinner!
The poll was sponsored by the National Army Museum in London. After an online, nationwide poll of Brits, the top five commanders were discussed and voted on by a group of experts at an all-day speaker event at the museum.  To be eligible, enemy commanders had to actually lead an army in the field which left out political pussies like Hitler.

Rounding out the top five, after the father of our country, were:
  • Michael Collins- Irish independence leader
  • Napoleone Boneparte- Frenchie prick with little guy syndrome
  • Erwin Rommel- Nazi Germany's "Desert Fox" of North Africa
  • Mustafa Kemal Atatürk- Ottoman leader who repelled Allied forces in WWI
Way to go General Washington!  You're still garnering respect 213 years after your death.

Too bad George Washington doesn't garner that kind of respect here in his own country.

In a recent poll, 36% of American high school graduates identified GW as, "A type of lobster."
