His Natholeonicness Rates the top ten Generals of all time
- Part the First: The methodical Generals
10 - The Duke of Wellington.  Has the grudging respect of his Imperiousness.  This Anglo-Irish peer was a remarkably competent Sepoy general, securing sweeping victories in adverse conditions in India before moving on to beat a succession of French Marshals in the Peninsula.  Could not beat Napoleon by himself and had to rely on the Prussians (of all people) to bail him out at Waterloo, but nevertheless his career is a good demonstration of how to use terrain effectively and understand the importance of logistics. 
9 - The United States has produced many generals, but this is the only one his Majesticness has time for.  Ulysses Grant decided that it was time that the Union stopped pussy-footing about and used its overwhelming strength to crush the Confederacy.  Also capable of manoeuvre warfare, as at Vicksburg, it was nevertheless his ruthless determination to win no matter what the cost that made him a great commander.  Oddly enough, he is respected for this in his home country whereas others in the same mod are not (see number 7).
8 - The premier general of the Second World War, Zhukov made sure that the Soviet Union would first of all survive (at Moscow in 1941) and then led the attack that would destroy Nazi Germany.  His Regalness has much time for Zhukov's ruthless determination to win and his ability to utilise the concepts of Oprational Manoeuvre and exploitation.  Not quite so impressed with the lack of finesse (clearing minefields with infantry battalions seems a little bit wasteful...).
7 - Unappreciated for far too long it is time that the record was set straight.  Haig led the army that defeated Imperial Germany in 1918.  He made mistakes in what was a very difficult war to adjust to, but as with those listed above, he knew the consequences of defeat were too disastrous to contemplate.  He led the might of his industrialised nation to victory in the manner that Grant led the US in the American Civil War.  He was far more concerned about the welfare of his troops than has often been realised, and was tacticaly innovative.  His Highestness is disappointed that Sir Douglas is often not given the respect that he is due.
