SOME OF THE MOST HARDCORE PEOPLE TO HAVE EVER LIVED
Added on: 3rd Dec 2016
There are few things more hard core than facing a
column of tanks without so much as a gun.
Genghis Khan’s military strategist was probably one of the
most ruthless warriors in history. He ploughed across
two continents like it was nothing.
This Mongolian princess insisted that any man who wished to
marry her must beat her in wrestling and give her their
horses if they lost. She supposedly won nearly 10,000 horses.
Known as Mad Jack by his fellow soldiers, during WWII Jack
chose to use a sword instead of a gun and was allegedly
disappointed when the war ended.
The advisor to the Romanov family was nearly impossible
to kill. During an assassination attempt he survived
being poisoned, shot, beaten and thrown into a
freezing river. He died under the ice but there was
evidence that he had still tried to claw his way out.
FREDERICK THE GREAT
Taking on Austria, France, Sweden, Poland, Russia and
several smaller German and Italian city states, Frederick
managed to unite the German speaking people into an
empire that would be the most powerful on Earth
until World War I.
Like Rasputin, Michael refused to die. A homeless man,
5 men took out life insurance policies on him and then
tried to get him to drink himself to death. That didn’t work
so they added antifreeze to his drinks, then turpentine,
then horse tranquilizer and finally rat poison. Nothing
worked so they dragged him outside and left him in the
snow outside the bar. The next morning he walked in and
ordered another drink. They then ran him over, which
also didn’t work. They finally succeeded by shoving a gas
pipe down his throat and pumping him full of gas for
1 hour. They later received the death penalty.
STANLEY “SWEDE” VEJTASA
Possibly one of the craziest American pilots during World War II,
he actually shot down a plane after running out of ammunition
by charging it with his own plane. He survived.
The real Captain America, Audie was only 16 when he got
rejected from both the Navy and Air Force. He was finally
accepted by the Army, passed out in training, but still
insisted on going to fight in Europe. In Italy he then
contracted Malaria. He became famous, however,
when he stumbled across a German machine gun crew
that pretended to surrender but then shot his best
friend. Audie went crazy and killed everyone in the nest.
After securing the machine gun he mowed down every
German within a 100 yard radius.
