I bolded the part in the quote I found weird.

Two: Hashirama did defeat Madara. He didn't kill him. But he defeated him. Madara is strong, but he is by no means "The Ultimate Shinobi" Of the five Hokages at least two of them were stronger than him: the first and the third. We know this because the first beat him, and because the third was supposedly one of the strongest Shinobi ever.
I know you mean that Madara tricked Hashirama, but I just didn't like the way you phrased it, and its late here, and I decided to point out flaws that I saw with the phrasing.
Even more, in my mind, I don't think Madara tricked Hashirama. I think it was it was one of those "Leave him for dead" things. They always turn out to be huge "LOLOOPS" moments.
