TIP Boney in top five foes list

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

DESERT Fox Er­win Rom­mel and Napoleon are among the most dan­ger­ous five gen­er­als ever to threaten Bri­tain, a Na­tional Army Mu­seum poll has found.

The pair are joined by Ir­ish na­tion­al­ist Michael Collins and Gal­lipoli gen­eral Mustafa Ke­mal Ataturk, who cur­rently heads the poll.

Amer­ica’s Ge­orge Washington took fifth place for his role in the War of In­de­pen­dence.

More than 8,000 peo­ple voted in the ‘En­emy Com­man­ders: Bri­tain’s Great­est Foes’ poll, and the top five will now be rep­re­sented at a con­fer­ence on April 14, with the win­ner de­clared the most dan­ger­ous gen­eral this coun­try has ever faced.

A spokesman said Ataturk had polled the most votes on­line but the final win­ner has yet to be an­nounced.

He said: “There have been sev­eral fron­trun­ners. Napoleon led the field for much of Fe­bru­ary with Rom­mel a close sec­ond.”
