TIP Boney in top five foes list
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.”
