According to the publishers of this quiz, only 4% of men can name these famous historical military figures. Are you in the top 4%?

p.s. I'm not.  At wits' end   I only got 34 out of 40 correct.   Embarrassed

38/40 Never heard of Chesty Puller, and made the wrong choice between Nimitz and  Spruance!

Gimme a clue.

Are there ANY that I might get right ?

38/40 too many Americans - guessed wrong on Chesty Puller, and never heard of that WW1 'father of the air force' chap!

38/40 - got Pizzaro and Cortes the wrong way round ... you'd think having got one wrong I'd get the other!

Got lucky on a number of best guesses.

Several of the images seemed positively bizarre as illustrations of pre-photography characters.

Rather US centric too.
