It’s an honor just to be nominated

A contest run by the British National Army Museum has named George Washington as the most formidable foe faced by Great Britain since the 17th century.

I find this a little surprising. Washington scored some brilliant victories, but he also made some big mistakes, particularly on Long Island. I would have picked Napoleon, who came in third.
