What wars had the best mercenaries and what mercenaries fought for the noblest cause?
The Rhodenisan mercenaries in the bush war for both
Shame they lost and we have the Zimbabwe of today with all that stolen white land
>What wars had the best mercenaries
my choice would be Swiss mercenaries during late middle ages and Renaissance
>and what mercenaries fought for the noblest cause
if you count money among the noble causes, then all of them
>mfw a filthy Jacobin tried to capture the royal family near me
Most noble I can think of would be the 600 Swiss mercenaries that died trying to protect the king during the August 10th, 1792 Tuileries Palace raid.
There's a pretty great memorial to the defeat in Switzerland.
I agree it was the Rhodesians but I have a soft spot for lost causes
Reminder that this man sneak attacked a camp of sleeping men on Christmas night. And this is considered a glorious battle by most Americans.
