  • Rodrigo Diaz de Vivar: Better known as “El Cid,” Diaz (1044-1099) developed creative battle strategies that led to victories against both Moorish kings and Christian armies.

  • Maurice of Nassau: The Prince of Orange (1618-25) applied a systematic study of military history, strategy and tactics to his reorganization of the Netherlands’ armies, resulting in tremendous battlefield success.

  • Gustavus Adolphus: This Swedish king (1611- 32) has often been called “the father of modern warfare” for his development of a professional army featuring mobile artillery and improved infantry and cavalry formations.

    Oliver Cromwell: Cromwell created and led the “Ironsides” cavalry, the shock force of England’s New Model Army (1645) that destroyed Royalist forces, sealing Parliament’s victory.

    Turenne: Turenne, a marshal of France (from 1643), was considered one of warfare’s “Great Captains” by Napoleon, who urged his soldiers to “read and reread” Turenne’s campaigns.

    Duke of Marlborough: John Churchill, victor at the Battle of Blenheim (1704), was the most impressive English commander of his time. He dominated European battlefields during the War of Spanish Succession.

    Maurice de Saxe: De Saxe, a marshal general of France, achieved his most important victory at the Battle of Fontenoy (1745). His notable contributions to the era’s warfare included organization, training and tactical innovation.

    Frederick the Great: Prussia’s redoubtable king (1740-86) relied on iron discipline, solid battlefield leadership and innovative tactical formations to defeat numerous coalition enemies.

    Andre Massena: Perhaps the best of Napoleon’s marshals (Napoleon thought so), Massena (1758-1817) boasted a battlefield success record that ranked second only to the emperor’s.
  • Napoleon: Considered history’s most brilliant commander, Napoleon exhibited a mastery of strategy, tactics and administration that won France an empire and led to the use of the term “Napoleonic” to describe an entire era of warfare (1799-1815).

    Duke of Wellington: “Iron Duke” Arthur Wellesley frustrated Napoleon’s armies in Spain and then defeated them at Waterloo (1815) to become England’s most renowned commander of the Napoleonic Era.

    Helmuth von Moltke: As chief of the General Staff (1857-88), Moltke was the principal engineer of Prussia’s victories over Denmark (1864), Austria (1866) and France (1870) – triumphs that led to Prussia’s leadership of the new German Empire.
  •  

     

     

    Paul von Lettow-Vorbeck: While commanding German forces in East Africa during World War I (1914-18), Lettow-Vorbeck proved a master of guerrilla warfare, keeping 100,000 British and Allied forces tied up with only 15,000 troops.

Robb Stark was a good general but crap on the other qualities which made for a king.  Jon Snow was not bad as a battle leader but sucked on judging and ruling men.  Adding a general into their talent mix would not solve their problem.
