The Lanning Rating
Michael Lanning has written The Military 100 (Citadel Press. New Jersey. 1996), an interesting book about the 100 most influential military leaders in history. Twenty of the Warriors on this year's roster have been ranked by Lanning. These rankings appear at the player's entry on this plate.

For your information, the five most influential military leaders as ranked by Lanning are: George Washington, Napoleon I, Alexander the Great, Genghis Khan, and Julius Caesar. In his "Foreword" Mr. Lanning writes:

The most influential leaders in world history have come not from the church, the halls of government, or the scholastic centers, but from the ranks of soldiers and sailors.
