5e Half-Orc Brute

This is a build for a straight forward brutal half-orc fighter.  I'm not thinking of a specific half-orc character for this, just the general archetype of a simple power-focused half-orc warrior.

Reasoning: I want this half-orc to be ridiculously hard to kill.  Also, this is not a sophisticated character, this is someone who is going to get through things on pure power.

Reasoning: Okay, with Dual Wield, this build can now use any one-handed weapon in two hands, not just light weapons.  And Great Weapon Master gives even more damage potential to the great axe.
