This is the toughest one of the round for me and both sides make some compelling arguments. In the end, Saladin's ability to get different tribes to work together was the tie breaker. I think about everything going on in Iraq right now and anyone that can get different tribes on the same page gets my vote!

Saladin got different tribes to unite because he was a conquerer of many tribes. Gustavus got different States to work together because of his victories against the common enemy.

I voted for Saladin in the last two rounds because he was the better general. This round im voting for Adolphus because i feel he is a better general than Saladin. It has nothing to do with race or skin color or the current war in Iraq.

Adolphus for me, he invented tactics that would be used by military powers until WW I

When considering the great captains of history, Napoleon put Adolphus in the list right after the greats of ancient times. It's a no-brainer here.

Adolphus has got my vote because of the impact he had on western military science and developement. His field artillery just kicked ass!
