Regarding the thread "Greatest Military Leader". I thought I'd have a bash at the trickier "Worst Military Leader". The great problem is that most of the worst got their asses kicked in such short order that their names are lost to History. So I've picked the caveat - on the winning side. Xerxes who gained a Pyrrhic victory at Thermopylae, Field Marshall Haig, Napoleon who won his wars through dint of chucking way more men at the problem, the Russian commanders of WWI. Just some ideas for you. I'm going for General Mark Clark who threw away a great victory by letting his ego get the better of him and marching through the streets of Rome rather than trapping the German 10th Army. In your own time... go on.
