Kept telling people, this is about the middle ages and renaissance.

The mongols were very, very good. Definitely one of the best at the day. But the europeans were not feeble pathetic as many people said and are at the mercy of the mongols. The death that saved europe is a wrong saying. Europe was extremely capable of defending them selves.

Mongols and their horses were awesome. They powned people. But old school Delta force is better.

Topic: most impressive


the most impressive off the list would be the longbowmen and the marmuluks.

but overall i'd choose the scotish infantry of the middle ages.
those men running at you in a battle would of been quite itimidating i would think.

the most impressive army? for me, it isn't on the list. There are two actually from history...

The first was the the immortal 10,000 mercanarys that came from greece, went to the middle of the unknown world, betrayed to their enemies by their benefactors, then had to fight their way back to greece. For sheer unit cohesiveness, you cant beat the record of this little army.

The other group was (gasp) the chinese communist forces that made the long march.

What makes both of these groups impressive is that despite the odds, they maintained discipline, overcame the odds, stayed together, and lived to fight another day...against everything thrown at them.

salute!
