Ghengis Khan vs. Alexander the Great

A question from Yahoo! Answers:

Who’s the greater General? Ghengis Khan or Alexander the Great?

for my History research paper..Who do you think was a better General and leader?

Depends on whom you ask. Sun-Tsu would say neither, since the best general is one that wins without fighting.

Also, consider this. A good leader is someone who creates an organization that survives his demise. Neither Alexander nor Ghengis Khan managed to do that. Both their empires fell apart after their deaths…
