The Wright Brothers dont get that much attention. But they did get alot in 2003 so maybe not. Just being baised I guess.
Maybe Harry S Truman. Ending WWII.

I think Nicola Tesla wins this prize. He invented and contributed to many things we use today. Unfortunately credit is usually not given to him for much of his work.

hitler, i am completely against his whole 23 million death thing but think about what he wanted to do a master race, what are we trying to do now take a series of races and try to make worldwide peace, thats all hitler was pushing for back then, sure his views on jews gays and blacks were completely off but think if he hadnt spread his army into russia and moved into the middle east and controlled the muslim population, i think todays world would be completely diffrent,

Hitler just has a diffrent approach then president bush, hitler also moved alot faster then bush in terms of war but he had the right idea just the wrong approach


yeah yeah i know i will get some serious flak for this but life goes on

Not really. Man is instinctively violent and that will never change. All Bush is really doing is furthering his and the US's own interests (just like everyone else would do).

Oh you better believe it. Fortunately, for you, you're not the extensive amount of time it would take to write how completely skewed and incorrect your response is. Not worth the effort if you believe what you just said.

Apart from that, theres also no freaking way hitler is underrated. He's just about as notorious as a person could become...The grandaddy of dictators.

Unless of course, you are saying his vision and intents are underrated, which is impossible for me to comprehend.

Lutz Long.

During the 1936 Berlin olympics, Jesse Owens was on the brink of elimination with one jump left in a preliminary round after missing his first two jumps. Long (German) came and advised Owens to jump slightly sooner, as the bar was not yet set high and it was only a preliminary round. Hitler was supposed to display the superiority of his master race, yet Owens eventually won the gold medal and he and Long walked arm in arm off the field.

"You can melt down all the medals and cups I have and they wouldn't be a plating on the twenty-four kilates friendship that I felt for Lutz Long at that moment." —Jesse Owens
