simo hayha the greatest marksman of all time, rambo is a boy scout after this guy.

He took out 500 to 800 russians in 100 days.
Let's not forget the effort the Russians went through to try and kill the guy as well.

And that he had nearly no formal military training.

Finland in the 1939-40 Winter War:
More because of Stalin's purge than the strength of the Finnish army.

In terms of size: The Red Army.

In terms of effectiveness: probably the Roman or Spartan Army.

I would say the early Muslims. They conquered one third of the WORLD, almost everything between Spain and China. They destroyed the two superpowers at that time, the Romans and the Persians and their commander in chief was probably the most influential person in human history. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_100

It wasn't a third of the world. Middle East, North Africa and Spain /= 1/3 of the world. They conquered the Persians but they didn't conquer the Romans.

The Macedonians under Alexander and the mid-late armies of Rome were the best military forces.

You're absolutely right. They conquered one-third of the then inhabited world.



I never said the Muslims conquered the whole of the Roman Empire. Europe would be Muslim, if that had happened. They did however conquer the imperial capital of the Roman Empire - Constantinople, and destroyed the East Roman Empire (Byzantines).

The Prussian Napoleonic Army under Clausewitz is also worth mentioning.

Rome post-Marius. Legions mean business, brah.

Finland c. 1939 is also a very, very good choice.
