    If we're talking since the 1700s I would say so, maybe rivaled by Frederick the Great and Patton, but in terms of shaking up every foundation of European society, I say Napoleon is the top of that list.

      so, Saddam is an influencial general because he triggered the US so hard they declared all out war against him and his country

      >negative value
      "The ideas that underpin our modern world—meritocracy, equality before the law, property rights, religious toleration, modern secular education, sound finances, and so on—were championed, consolidated, codified and geographically extended by Napoleon. To them he added a rational and efficient local administration, an end to rural banditry, the encouragement of science and the arts, the abolition of feudalism and the greatest codification of laws since the fall of the Roman Empire."
      Yeah, nah.

        While I don’t agree with the other guy, all of those ideas were already spreading like wildfire and would have almost certainly taken root with or without Napoleon. The US already had virtually all of that. Also, Roman law wasn’t codified until the reign of Justinian, after the Western (real) half of the empire fell.

    Ulysses S. Grant is the only man to conquer a nation bigger than continental Europe in the span of 2 years and have the nation he won/led last more than 10 with his military tactics.

      Has there ever been a more influential general?

      >Grant and Julia embarked for Paris on October 24 and checked in at the famous Hotel Bristol for five weeks. Grant for several reasons intended to make his visit to France an unofficial one.
      >Grant's less than favorable feelings toward Napoleon were largely known among French statesmen and military upon his arrival. Though Grant recognized Napoleon's acclaimed military genius, that he was a French Revolution war hero, he did not like the man himself, or the Bonaparte family. Grant once stated,

      "The third Napoleon was worse than the first, the especial enemy to America and liberty. Think of the misery he brought upon France by a war which only a madman would have declared."

      >While in Paris, Grant thought the various paintings portraying Napoleon's battles were distasteful.
      >Relations were further strained because U.S. Minister to France Elihu Washburne during the recent Franco-Prussian War once used his diplomatic immunity to protect German diplomats wanted by the French government – a position that was supported by Grant while president.
      > Young suggested that as an act of good faith they (Grant and Family) visit Napoleon's tomb, but upon coming to the scene Grant turned away.

      ODA was more important, and no one was wa bigger KEK than the drunkard Grant. he was involved with a massive gold scandal in the 1870s that almost took down the entire govt.

        1. Grant was never a drunkard. This has been attested multiple times by several Generals and people that were there during and after the Civil War.
        2. The Gold Scandal was not personally Grant's fault, but a conspiracy that he actively put a stop to save the economy from being monopolized, but at the cost of a crash.
        3. Everything you posted has nothing to do with him being a better general.

          To add-on to point one, General Lee, General Sherman, and Abraham Lincoln all defend the character of General Grant as one of the best Generals they ever seen and his character of not being a drunk. He was also one of the most legendary horse riders in his day.
