Chandragupta Maurya

Chandragupta Maurya is called ‘the Napoleon of Ancient India’ for his wars and victory. Chandragupta wars and victory success expanded the empire of Gupta. A V Smith called him so because of his great military conquests known from the ‘Prayag Prashati’ written by his courtier and poet Harisena, who also describes him as the hero of a hundred battles. But some leading Indian historians criticize Smith and feel that Samudragupta was a far greater warrior than Napoleon, as the former never lost any battle.
