Not sure about being a 'field commander' but he could without no doubt write some inspiring speeches for Generals. My favourite speech was from Elizabeth I, just before the Armada battle. Indirectly Shakespeare owes a lot to her as it was Elizabeth I that it possible for playwrights to flourish.

Well yes i agree. I have red Bernard Cornwells The Last Kingdom The Pale Horseman and Lords of the North and imo these books are as good as watching a movie they really are Great books to read and cant wait to read the next 1 003, These books are about King Alfred and the Vikings and a young hero and in these books it seems King Alfred could of use someone like Shakespeare before battle ::). All that said damn fine Books as if u where really there. 002

His magisterial portrayal of General George S Patton won him the Best Actor award at the 1971 Oscars. Scott shocked Hollywood by being the first person ever to refuse an Academy Award.

He said that the politics surrounding such awards was "demeaning" and described the Oscar ceremony as "a two-hour meat parade".

Also try to watch this Japanese beauty one day:

Kagemusha is an Oscar-nominated 1980 film by Akira Kurosawa.

George Lucas and Francis Ford Coppola are credited at the end of the film as executive producers in the international version. This is because they convinced 20th Century Fox to make up a shortfall in the film's budget when the original producers, Toho Studios, could not afford to complete the film. In return, 20th Century Fox received the international distribution rights to the film.
