Illustration for article titled Which Character Is A Hero To Us, But A War Criminal To The Other Side?

Sometimes, one culture's hero is another culture's villain — especially if they were on opposite sides of a conflict. Everybody always says that the winners write history, but often both sides have different versions. So which character is either a savior or a butcher, depending on whom you ask?


Please include a link to a picture, or post a clip, of your chosen hero/criminal. And please mention his/her name, where he/she appears, and why different sides have such different opinions. Thanks!
