General Slade

You’ll have Gazzola and Brechtel here in a minute

And then there goes the neighbourhood.

No doubt Wellington is advantaged by being a ‘hero’ of Anglophone countries. Thus he is seen perhaps overly favourably but should he be seen as merely the best of an indifferent lot of generals or a truly inspired figure? Is there a good basis for reaching an objective conclusion?

In answer to your last question, I don’t think there is any good basis for forming an objective conclusion to a question like this.   It is just a matter of opinion.  But personally, I think to believe that any general was “a truly inspired figure” you have to buy into a lot of romantic nonsense.
