In 1805 Napoleon made a mug of Austrian general Mack, in 1807 he dummied Russian commander Bennigsen, in 1809 the British under general Moore fled before him to the sea. In the flight the Brits lost their shoes. Ox-carts full of wounded and dying were abandoned by the roadside.

When it comes to medieval swords, fortunately there is a massive and ever changing range to choose from (in terms of sheer popularity, they are second only to the Japanese Katana).
