The Spartan military was able to dominate for so long because of superior military tactics, extensive training and discipline and advanced weaponry and armor, and intimidation and help from the gods. While the Spartan’s military tactics were not extremely uncommon, the Spartans practiced and perfected the tactics much more than opposing militaries. One tactic often deployed by the Spartan military was the Phalanx formation. This was a rectangular formation, holding heavily armed infantry men on the inside. Soldiers held shields up to cover protect themselves and allies, and through holes and cracks in the wall of shields long

("Aztec Warrior Training"). The youth were tested on how physically fit they were for actual battle by providing company with their leaders on campaigns.

However, There are characteristics common to most great leaders that can be picked out. The story Beowulf contains many different rulers that people follow. Among the various characteristics these men share, a few great qualities shine through, these being generosity, loyalty, and bravery.

His shield was a symbol of life as it described every aspect of life and not only war.

Lords gave the king loyalty, and to vassals/knights, he gave them part of his land in return for military service to the lord (Nardo). Vassals also protected the lord’s land and the peasants and other workers on the manor. The manor was the main source of the economy; most of the products came from the manor (Jovinelly and Netelkos 12). Manors were self-sustains large estates. Manors were huge; often consisting of multiple villages (Hazen).
“With the help of the military at his command, it was possible to conquer new territories and so gain a triumph and the pleasure of knowing that your name would be remembered forever in statues and inscribed in monuments paid for by the war” (Summary of Julius Caesar 's Life and Death).

William was a good king. I strongly believe that William was a good king, mainly because he had won many wars for his nation and had given them pride and land to live,work on and rule.Even though that he had raised the taxes really often it was for a good cause, like buy metals and other building material for military purposes or just for building houses for the serfs and their landowners.

He kept his word about protection to the serfs and everyone else.
In the beginning of World War 1 this form of fighting in which two armies would use their cavalry to charge at one another was very common because of its multiple advantages including that the troops had a greater mobility, a larger impact, and the riders had a higher position. For these reasons this type of fighting was a favorite of many generals, including the British cavalry which in 11918 had over 75,000 horses that were used in charges. However, this type of fighting worked well in the beginning of the war, some may argue that it had become completely useless by the end of the war because of the proliferation of war technology. Although horses were used less often by the end of the war compared to the beginning, it does not change the fact the cavalry battle tactics were still being used until the very end of the war. One example of this attack happened in 2March of 1918 when over 150 horses of the British cavalry charged on German fire.

The advantage that allowed the Confederacy to enjoy military success in the early years of the Civil War were that most of the battles were fought on their terrain. This gave them the upper hand in knowing the battlefield and knowing the best strategies to fight the Union. The Confederacy also had an upper hand in military leadership as an example Robert Lee. They had many veterans of the Mexican-American War, which had experience in war. The Confederacy had this feeling that they were fighting a war for independence that carried with it a sense of destiny that would sustain them through the difficult times ahead.
Alexander the Great was the most feared ruler of the very old world due to his huge military power and the old stories/famous people surrounding his origins. The people that he won (by force) lived in fear underneath his powerful rule. It was this fear and strong desire/formal decision about something that allowed him to spread Greek culture and values around the very old world. The "Great" had to learn his strategies and policies from somewhere. Much of what he learned can be seen by who taught him.
