    Best Generals in History ?

    cyfarchion

    this is not meant to be a poll but I just want people's opinions on top generals

    Some of my favourites

    Wellington
    Churchill
    Haig
    Monty
    Model
    von Manstein
    Dietrich

    There are a few more that should get some recognition not necessarily for field stuff but for when they became CIGS or similiar
    What do you think

    Mannerheim was a badass motherf*cker

    Patton was being held back by the PC police the whole f*cking war, he would've ran through europe and then ass-raped the Soviets, kept going on through the Chinks, swam across and invaded Japan while McArthur was still picking his nose and holding his dick, then land in Alaska and march the fuck down through Canada and take that, too. Great man.

    Best General in WWII

    Erwin Rommel, "The Desert Fox" He was even respected by Field Marshal Montgomery, whose collosal ego left almost no room for regard for anyone else.

    Best General in the Ancient World

    Hannibal Barca. He kept the Roman general, Fabius ("Cunctator" = "The Delayer") chasing him all over Italy for years while Hannibal ravaged the countryside so that the Romans feared his memory long after his death. :O

    If the Carthaginian senate had provided adequate support while he was in Italy, Hannibal could have conquered the whole Italian Peninsula, including Rome. :eek

    The best general of any age was

    General Stonewall Jackson, hands down. If Chancellorsville had been his only brilliant battle (which it wasn't) it alone would put him miles ahead of the others.

    By the way Winston Churchill was only good at murdering civilians. May he roast! What a legacy:thumbsdow

    I am somewhat surprised that no one have mentioned Der Führer.

    Just out of curiousity, what do the good people of BuB think of him as a general?

    Der Fuehrer

    Well, I knew that he had been a Corporal, but was he really a General ?

    I don't know much about that, but what does it matter, when the man almost conquered Europe?
