Top Ten Best World War II Generalsc3230
The Top Ten
Everyone thought Eisenhower was the best but it was Patton
A Guy who saw through the dangers if the Russians. And a helluva general.
Patton was the best, Ike was an idiot.
Not sure about overall #1 military WWII figure (ingnorant of Nazi and Russians as well the Allies) but he is my choice.V 1 Comment
Actually, he was one of the German military leaders in D-Day (but the Germans were tricked by the Allies into believing that they would attack at a different location) and contrary to popular belief, he wasn't directly involved in the assassination attempt on Adolf Hitler. He was only guilty of not telling the German High Command about it when he learned of it as many of his friends were involved in the conspiracy.
Rommel was by far the greatest general of World War II with his humane treatment of his prisoners and his superb fighting skills. He was unlike many of the other German leaders.
He was one of the few German Generals who never came under bad influence of committing bad deeds at war. Rommel fought good fights, ripped orders from Hitler in regards of executing captured Jewish soldiers and POWs and treated prisoners politely unlike typical German soldiers who committed atrocities. Bless the Desert Fox.
This guy was a great general luckily Hitler killed him because D-Day could have claimed a lot more lives.
This man kept the magnificent egos in check. Being a libra allowed him to do this
He was good but not as good as Rokossovsky who isn't even on this list which is scandalous
He advanced over 300 miles on the Eastern front during WW2 in just about 2 weeks, even though with high casualties
He was the one who planned the invasion of France which pretty much ended it for France, at least for the time
Only number 7? Wow
He was able to maintain and rebuild an army when Britain stood alone against Germany et al, the Russians out of the picture, and no American army. That took more courage than any US general.
A great general, but only in his own mind.
He is the second best French General and I think we all know who is number 1 - 2storm
T his guy hid out in England until they were ready to enter Paris?
This guy was the main reason for german victory in northen europe and eastern front. He was the only german genral to criticize the hitler sadly later he was removed and fired. If hitler listened to him we might be learning different history.
Few could have done more with what they had. He used terrain to his advantage and made excellent use of ambush warfare. He was also good at organisation and wider strategy, for example by shifting his reserves from one front to another during The Winter War he was able to counter multiple different Soviet forces and defeat each in turn.
The man behind the victory at Kursk and had the balls to tell Stalin that Operation Bagration needed two frontline strikes against German army group centre and not the Stalin favoured one, his reputation was sealed after he was proved right and he was promoted to Field Marshall
