    Clive of India easily beats both.

    He was sent to India at the age of 18 and ended up owning the place. He was the man responsible for the Britain getting an empire and providing us with sufficient wealth to start the industrial revolution.

    But the most badass story:

    Clive was involved in a card game and spotted one of the other players cheating. A duel ensued - Clive fired first but missed - his opponent put a gun to Clive's head and said "Withdraw or I fire", Clive's response: "Fire and be damned, I say you cheated and say so still. I'll never pay you". His opponent was so stunned by this response he dropped his gun and walked away.

    Really? France had more natural resources so the industrial revolution should've started there. But it didn't because the state had too many industrial policies etc.

    That's some good badassery, there. Some other military bad asses that come to mind are Sgt York, Audie Murphy and Andrew Jackson (who was one crazy-ass mofo).
    Then there's Shaka Zulu, G. Khan and whoever freed Lebell's town from the Germans in the 1940's.

    Good write up on Mad Jack, Phrost. I wonder what those Germans thought when they saw some guy with pipes and a Claymore coming at them?

    No - it's badass that he refused to back down on his principles even with a gun to his head.

    You see with most people if they spot someone stealing money from them by cheating in a card game will refuse to pay. Most people will pay up, however, once there's a gun pointed at their head.

    My town wasn't freed by any allies.
    It was still under control of the wehrmacht until the official capitulation.

    Clive was generally badass more in the Alexander the Great line though.

    He held Arcot with three hundred men against ten thousand, having taken it in a howling storm.
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battle_of_Arcot


    He won at Plassey with Machiavellian scheming; facing fifty thousand men with only three thousand, he bribed some of the disgruntled subordinates of his opponent's forces, who were convinced not to participate in the battle. Still greatly outnumbered, he carried the day largely thanks to better disciplined artillery.
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battle_of_Plassey


    Clive was a conniving bastard, but he was also a fantastically ballsy and competent general.
