Who would you list as most influential and important military commanders ever from your country? I mean military leaders who were responsible for winning or losing crucial battles that forever changed the course and development of your country.

Some of mine are:
George Washington
Robert E. Lee
Andrew Jackson
William T. Sherman
John F. Kennedy
Franklin D. Roosevelt
Harry S. Truman

The truth is only point of view. It all depends on your point of view. Try to get a better understanding of things before you make your judgement.

Alexander the Great was also a capable leader.

 

Eisenhower while not on the battlefield, had the difficulty of dealing with various national groups and their commanders. He commanded from the rear, but knew what orders to give to the right commanders.

Rommel was a great commander, France 1941 and the desert campaign prove this. With fewer men he was able to bind a very large amount of allied troops. If he had had more men and better supplies, he may have even taken Eygpt. Who knows.
