Beowulf was know for killing creatures that were much more overpowered that himself. Luttrell had done the best he could do in Operation Red Wings. Defeating three of the most powerful, god-like creatures on earth is far more impressive than fighting many untrained, uneducated Taliban fighters.

The great Mongol empire experienced a crippling blow to its foundation in the form of the bubonic plague. This deadly epidemic resulted in a great population drop, a situation that would never be solved properly by the Mongols; the plague was a major contributor to the eventual destruction of the Mongol empire.

Genghis Khan was shown to be an expert strategist and military genius, which was reflected in the tactics that his Mongol army displayed during battle. Despite those presentations of military prowess, the Mongols are considered to be severely barbaric and violent peoples to most modern Europeans.
To start, Asoka’s responsibility for taking innocent lives of civilians and soldiers was merciless.

The Spartans developed into a conservative military for many reasons. They were able to conquer land and in the progress captured slaved. The Spartans were surrounded by enemies and outnumbered 10-1 ratio. This led to a constant fear and intercurrence .
The Patriots were the underdogs, no one expected the small Patriot army to beat the massive, powerful British army. How did they beat such a big army who had more than double the amount of soldiers as the Patriots? It was because the Patriots had strengths while the British army had weaknesses. The British did have stronger troops, better supplies, and a larger army.

They allowed China to continue its bureaucratic ways, but had absolute control over everything. Although there are other cultures that have influenced China’s government, the Mongols had a great impact on China’s government. This is shown by the similar traits both governments of the time share, its military dependency, intimidation, and absolute power without any checks.
