Ned Stark, definitely. The man may not be the greatest strategist/tactician, but he inspires the love of his people, and considering the North is the first realm in danger, he's a cinch.

Stannis would be the top commander numero dos, with Randyll Tarly as his second-in-command.

But let's be real: King Bob is gonna be leading the fight because he's King Bob.

I would choose Chezdhar zo Rhaezn and one of his brothers (the so-called 'Clanker-Lords') as my generals and their chained slave army as my troups.

The chained slave soldiers make for a nice Trojan horse: Once they get slain and raised by the WW they severely hamper any sort of organized troup movement by the wight army.

Imagine those long rows of chained ice-zombies ambling this way and that (and quite likely hopelessly entangling even their un-chained co-wights.)

ROFL

If this is pre GOT events and all the realm is united, then the picks should be:

1.Tywin Lannister - organization

2.Stannis Baratheon - defence strategy

if the picks are based on GOT events then u have :

1.Bronn - organization

2.Ramsay - defence strategy

Tywin is a politician at heart and fights humans (should the Others fear him? reputation is his being), Stannis is a good tactician but not a strategist. 

Let the professionals handle the task of fighting a prolongued movement war in cold weather:

- Lord Commander Mormont (it's his job)
- Mance Raydar (he does it to survive)

honorable mention: commanders with extended cold weather and leadership experience and useable as real field commanders under the strategic command: Stannis, Ned Stark, Howland Reed (for his ability to hold the Neck), and so on. There is no lack of good field commanders.

my first pick was Mormont also but he did an awful job as a commander of Night Watch (poor management of man and resource) + man mutiny. u need to defend the Wall, castles against WW. Stannis already proved hes good at that. u need someone to inspire respect and fear, someone like BlackFish

Mance Rayder good as a leader but the Realm is united. So we already have a king, dozen of nobles and too much hate against free folks. He will never be picked as general of huge army + he proved he is not a good strategist.

Absolutely! Damn, why didn't I think of that! :whip:

The other obvious one is Jon, of course. 

Pre-GOT Jon? I would say nay on that one as he undergoes significant development through the first book aloneness which makes him more suited to command by Dance.

Stannis is a good choice, I think, as long as he includes suitable advisors on his council - like Archmaester Marlyn for example. No point being a brilliant strategist if you know nothing about your foes

Agree. I was thinking ADwD Jon. I also never considered characters that are already dead, or I would definitely have added Ned too. :)

I do the picking here. That was the entire point of the question. Also I want to win the war, not have some spoiled Lady Sansa version of it where nobility has to win in order of their rank.

I would put Northeners who know/remember more about this danger. Ned Stark and Jeor Mormont are good choices.
