Top Ten Best World War II Generalsc3230
The Top Ten
Everyone thought Eisenhower was the best but it was Patton
Patton was the best, Ike was an idiot.
A Guy who saw through the dangers if the Russians. And a helluva general.
Patton was the best. He was right about the Russians.V 4 Comments
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.
Easily the greatest of the ww2 generals. It’s shocking that Rokossovsky and Model don’t find a place in the top 10. Montgomery for me is the most overrated general and shouldn’t be in the top 10. His most notable role in the war was the failed attempt of marketgarden. Also, he allowed the Germans to escape from the falaise pocket. How is it even possible for Eisenhower and de Gaulle to sneak into the top 10.V 1 Comment
He masterminded many decisive victories for Germany and he was against mass killings unlike Hitler, Hitler then dismissed his best general. The Germans could conquer the world without Hitler interfering with the plans
He was the one who planned the invasion of France which pretty much ended it for France, at least for the time
He should have towered over Rommel. He's the best German Field Marshal. No general could beat his tactics and brilliant forms of strategy. Zhukov himself feared his prowess in both of those fields. Hitler's interference ruined his momentum leading him to his downfall.
After the fall of Stalingrad this man reversed the Red army' massive counter attack at Kharkov with a vicious backhanded blow from a brilliant strategic retreat. Beautiful.V 2 Comments
This man kept the magnificent egos in check. Being a libra allowed him to do this
Born laeder and taction ploitision
He’s 😎 and his baldness is over 9000!
He was good but not as good as Rokossovsky who isn't even on this list which is scandalous
When the Nazis go to sleep, they check under their beds for this guy. - BIG260911
Can't you see it. Zhukov won the war himself - Ognian
He advanced over 300 miles on the Eastern front during WW2 in just about 2 weeks, even though with high casualties
Douglas Macarthur was the best general, hero of 3 war, his dedication for US and philippine allowed to win the war against Japan.He achieved remarkable success in the Pacific Theater (1941-45) despite his inadequate supplies and limited numbers of troops and ships. He is unmistakably the greatest american strategist
He was the best.
The great U.S. general that was fired.
The greatest u.s general - flubudet
He was such a great strategist - 2storm
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.
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.
The best general in Ww2. Dismisses because of saving his soldiers.
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?
He made the Gustav line around Rome protecting Northern Italy from the allies.
Fiery, aggressive, my type of general. Should be up there with Rommel.
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
Played a Key role in both Moscow and Stalingrad, was responsible for the victory at Kursk and destroyed the Herresgruppe Mitte, in the to this day greatest defeat of german armed forces.
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.
One of the best "Defense General" in WW2
Very smart in using the submarines to hold off the Japanese while the Navy was rebuilding.
He was commander of the pacific fleet. How is he not on the list?
