Blood On the Sand: Sun Tzu vs. Vlad the Impaler

by MariShapiro   June 29, 2010 at 12:14PM  |  Views: 368

Historical quibbles aside, this is a battle that does one of the things I love best about Deadliest Warrior - it reaches across time and space to compare two of the most unlikely candidates for a fight. We're looking at a gap of roughly 2,000 years between our combatants, and that raises a big question: will Sun Tzu's ancient Chinese technology be enough to overcome Vlad's medieval European armaments? Can brain overcome brawn, especially in a one-to-one fight between men who are better known for standing with their armies?

Despite the relatively primitive armaments we'll see in each warrior's hands tonight (more on those here), we'll be seeing ancient incendiary weapons put to the test. While the effectiveness of flame as a weapon isn't in question, its ability to shape and control the battlefield, especially between two opponents is something I wish we'd had the opportunity to spend more time on.

Additionally, this episode features one of the more gruesome execution demonstrations we've seen to date on the show. You can probably guess what it is, but it's just as horrific as you can imagine.

That's it for this week. Be sure to check out tonight's episode, and as usual Geoff (@GeoffDesmoulin), the Doc (@DrDorian) and I (@MaxGeiger) are around on twitter.

Until next time, morituri te salutant,

Max
