THESE CARDS WOULD BE A GREAT ITEM IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN: Russia - Russian, History 741 Aleksandr V. Suvorov (1729-1800) was probably the greatest military commander who ever lived. He was easily in the same league as Alexander the Great, George S. Patton Jr., and Hannibal. He was the one man who, at the end of the 18th century, could have stopped Napoleon in his tracks; Longworth (1965, The Art of Victory) says that Napoleon may have been afraid of Suvorov, who humiliated several of Napoleon's future marshals in Italy and Switzerland. A comparison of Suvorov's principles to Frederick the Great's own writings proves that "Old Fritz" was very lucky that Suvorov was only a junior officer during Prussia's wars with Russia. Longworth summarizes Suvorov's career, "He won far too frequently to be called lucky: he never lost." Suvorov's record was, in fact, 63 victories and no losses, often against numerically superior enemies. During an era in which "victory" went to whoever controlled the battlefield at the day's end, a victory by Suvorov often involved the complete destruction of the opposing army; its soldiers were usually killed or wounded, captured, or routed beyond hope of reorganization.
