I've just realised that there are 2 meanings of 'General';

(Original post by http://dictionary.reference.com/search?q=general)

1. Concerned with, applicable to, or affecting the whole or every member of a class or category

2. A commissioned rank in the U.S. Army, Air Force, or Marine Corps that is above lieutenant general.
One who holds this rank or a similar rank in another military organization.
As you all seem to only post about the first type of 'general', so use this thread to talk about your favourite Generals!!

My Favourite was; General Heinz Guderian (mmmmmmm beans)


Guderian revolutionized tank warfare, and was much more in tune with the tactical situation than anyone back in Berlin. Hitler should have paid more attention to him. He's also lucky to be one of the few high-ranking Germans to survive both Hitler and Nuremburg, and lived to write his memoirs.

:rolleyes:
