    What's wrong with Sherman? He was a great general.

    BTW, I was Robert E. Lee.

    I think the test is a "bit" out of touch.

    I'm just guessing, but I suspect being TR and the whole lead by example thing it might have to do with being a visual person for me. I have a hard time understanding things I can't see, so I answered with things like "Go to the front in person" instead of "Stay at HQ and try to understand the radio transmissions."

    Being a visual person also effects my learning. I can learn twice as much in half the time in an apprenticeship situation than in a lecture hall environment. I hated high school. Go figure.

    Well here is a coincidence !
    You all above - Americans, were compared to American generals/leaders.

    Me ?
    No way the game could have known, but I was compared to.....

    Arthur Wellesley, Duke of Wellington! :)
    I'm happy with that.

    Good game.
    Regards,
    Anthony.

    4 questions seems a bit short to me, but mine culminated with being compared to John Paul Jones.
