There are a lot of great battles that the world has witnessed, but probably one of the greatest battles is the battle of Saragarhi. This was fought back on September 12, 1897. This was a fight between the British Indian Empire and the tribesmen of Afghan. What made this amazing is that there were only 21 Sikh soldiers that decided to stand up to about 10,000 men of the tribesmen.

This may be enough to make some soldiers want to steer clear from the issue, but since they wanted to settle things once and for all, this occurred. This is still considered to be important and memorable right now, probably because of the timing of the battle. This occurred during the ‘Great Game.’

Battle of Gaugamela Over the years, we have had many great battle strategies that have work wonders. For me, the battle between Alexander the Great’s army invading the Persian Achaemenid Empire (Battle of Gaugamela remains the greatest battle strategy of all time. In 334 BC, Alexander the Great and his army invaded the Achaemenid Empire, also known as the Persian Empire. It is believed that Alexander's choice for the northern route caught the Persians off guard.

Darius would have expected Alexander to take a much faster route directly to Babylon. Alexander began the battle by ordering his infantry to march in phalanx formation towards the center of their enemy line. During the battle, Alexander used an unusual strategy. This strategy has only been duplicated a few times. Alexander began by riding all the way to the edge of the right flank with his Companion Cavalry. His plan was to draw as many Persian cavalries to the flanks; this will cause a gap to be created in the enemy line and make it possible to strike Darius in the center.
