Of course he was a great general, but an insparation for next generations? As a pacifist i prefer a genius general like Mustafa Kemal Ataturk. His mind was unique, in his personal life he was an unhappy man because nobody could inderstand him, but he was a true genius, and one of the best generals in the world history. He is a true insparation of reforming, not Fatih. Dont forget that Fatih killed his wife (Byzantine Prinsses Irene) because she was beautiful. He just took her head of, in front of his court. Brrrrrrrrrrr. As a woman i am not inspired by a man like that. On the contrary Kemal was a real gentleman, and a charismatic person, espesialy to woman, my aunt was lucky to meet him, and she had her photo next to her ,until she died.
