Who would win? My history isn't as good as I would like but interested to know what other people think. Is there anyone else who would trump either of them?
Civil Rights Top Trumps: Mandela v. Gandhi
And wouldn't World Leader Top Trumps be a great game? You could have sections on Civil Rights, Warmongering, Economics, Similarity with Bond baddies.....
Mandela would win the media coverage category
Only because Gandhi didn't have twitter
Gandhi would win by a nose because he didn't head the paramilitary wing of his Congress Party.
Would have to be Gandhi (although it didn't work out so well with the whole Hindu/Muslim harmony thing).
World. Leader TopTrumps didn't go down too well apparently
My history isn't as good as I would like
Well start here and see where you go.
If thats too much then try
Ghandi - IMDB
Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom
History is generally an interpretation of the facts written by those who won. Sometimes part of the story is lost or over emphasised depending on who is telling and why they are telling it (See American films on WWII)
Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.
He who controls the present, controls the past. He who controls the past, controls the future.
Orwell but very similar to
History is written by the victor
Long winded way of saying read and make your own mind up
