You guys tend to slide off topic easily.

I think Dowding has got plenty of "airtime" over the years.

I agree with the General Slim selection. He did some great things in the Far East, particularly when resources were very tight there.

how about Suren, the persian cavalry general who annihilated Crassus at Carhae and poured molten gold down his throat?

Was there a point to any of that??? Does ANYONE have reliable sources to back up their claims??

Oh yes, I forgot my first reaction: Who cares who can blast the crap out of who?? We're allies so why does it matter?
I can back it up seeing as i dealt as a gunner in the navy. You can't pull these "facts" off the internet as its High security stuff, doh!

it was banter no need to get in a huff.

Although Suvorov would be a good choice, I know not of one Russian youth who doesn't know who he is and how great he was. So I would pick Heinz Guderian, a true master strategist with an ability to look past his time's combat methods and come up with his own.

He does as he tends to get overshadowed by Zhukov. However, I wouldn't pick him over either Guderian or Manstein.
