Timor Lang, also known as Tamerlane was probably one of histories most enigmatic military leaders of all time. One of the most puzzling aspects about him is that he simply didn't lose. Unlike Ghengis Khan, Tamerlane's strategies were never quite as cunning, instead he chose to always meet his enemies in their full strength and then crush them. He almost dismantled the Ottoman Empire with a single battle. He even defeated the Golden Horde One of the hardest things to understand about him is how he always managed to overcome any obstacle or Enemy. Unfortunately nothing he accomplished survived for long after his death. Building an empire entirely around his personality it died with him.
