    Author: THOMPSON BEN

    An unstoppable collection of the most hardcore figures who ever strapped on chain mail and ran screaming into battleThroughout history-from the bone-crushing age of antiquity to the sack-tearing modern era-there have been larger-than-life ass-kickers with a natural talent for unleashing their epic bloodlust on anyone who crossed them. They built empires, smashed armies, and ravaged civilizations for wealth, glory, and ultimate supremacy. Sometimes villains, sometimes heroes, sometimes criminally insane, they had one thing in common: They were all . . . Badass!Chandragupta Maurya An Indian warlord who commanded an army of drunken war elephants and employed an elite detachment of highly trained female bodyguardsPeter Francisco An unsung hero of the American Revolution, this powerful giant battled the British with a massive five-foot-long broadswordWolf the Quarrelsome A mysterious barbarian leader who only appears in history twice-and both times he's kicking someone's assBhanbhagta Gurung A fearless Gurkha who won the Victoria Cross by clearing out six Japanese foxholes with nothing more than grenades, a bayonet, and a knifeFrom Alexander the Great to George S. Patton, from Genghis Khan to Bruce Lee, this pantheon of ass-kicking awesomeness should inspire you to quit your stupid job and dive headfirst into a new career as a professional badass.

    Ben Thompson graduated cum laude from the honors program at Florida State University with degrees in history and political science, and has run the war hammer of a website, badassoftheweek.com, since 2004. Even though he's never flown a jetpack over the Atlantic Ocean or punched someone so hard that his head exploded, he is considered by many to be the world's foremost expert on badassitude.
