I believe that the Norman’s trick was the main reason for their victory. In advance of the Battle of Hastings, Harold had been in another battle with the Norwegians (King Harald Hardrada and his army) and had therefore lost lots of soldiers in that battle. Having heard of the invasion of the Normans in the south very shortly afterwards, Harold rushed down south, collecting random peasants in an attempt to complete his army to its former quantity as he journeyed down the country. Because of his loss of soldiers, only 2000 out of the 7000 soldiers in his army were actually well trained, whereas William had 7000 soldiers who were all well trained. In addition, the Norman army consisted of a whole range of different occupations such as foot-soldiers, archers and cavalry wearing chain-mail armour – another thing Harold was without.
He was a very experienced and ruthless military commander, ruler and administrator who had unified Normandy and inspired fear and respect outside of his duty. From a young age he had learnt that in order to survive he had to ‘meet force with force’ – a lesson he had learnt from the assassinations attempts he endured after being named Duke of Normandy at aged 7. His frequent practice of this belief – in every battle he fought, including that against the unruly barons who had tried to assassinate him – shows that William believed military tactics an skills were important to succeed in life and so had the upper hand when it came to the Battle of Hastings, and his persistent bravery in the face of danger led to his reputation of being a skilled and successful battle leader. Furthermore, William knew that his cavalry was extremely important and had learnt this from previous battles he had fought, e.g. at Civitate in 1053 where the skilled and co-ordinated use of lances while on horse led to a Norman victory over the Germans.
This led Hitler to pull back his heavy armor divisions from Normandy which allowed the beaches to be conquered. Also, the Army Rangers were the ones responsible for the entire invasion on D-Day. They stormed the beaches and conquered them with great difficulty. Without the Rangers, World War II never would have been won
With a strong military hold, France was able to lead the way in the Franco-Dutch War, the War of the League of Augsburg, and the War of the Spanish Succession. For this reason, they became even more militaristically advanced. This could be a reason why France was considered the most powerful nation of its time. While fighting these wars, they apparently created enemies as well. Although the Netherlands could be accepted as an enemy of France around 1650, even more so would be Spain.
One of the many things that made Napoleon a good and smart leader was his battle strategies and tactics. In the year 1796 Napoleon finally gained control of the French army in Italy and at the same time started doing a campaign against the country of Austria on March 11th, which would take Napoleon to absolute power in France and later Europe. With the years of the campaign napoleon won many battles due to promising his soldiers great things and a large help of personal bravery.

The military strength and wealth he gained through his conquests in Gaul would pave his way to a successful career.

Thus the Gallic Wars played a significant role in Julius Caesar’s Career, both politically and militarily. Caesar’s reputation as a General, who is considered to be more prominent than Pompey the great, was not comprehended until the Gallic Wars. Instead he was known to be one of the ablest orators and “most adroit politicians of the day”[F.B Marsh] and his military skills were most likely not rated very highly.
His military tactics of surrounding the enemy is the reason his armies were so effective (doc D). He put the slaves or prisoners in the center of the fight where the enemy's strongest men will be. Genghis then put his strongest men on the sides of the enemy's army so he could clear through them very quickly and so there would be fighting on all sides.

The main reasons for why the Reds won the Civil War the geographical factors affecting the war, support for the Bolsheviks and the Red Army and crucially were the leadership of Trotsky.

The first reason why the Reds had such a better leader was the way he chose and commanded his army. This was firstly by very strict military discipline.
