Certainly, there is an awful lot of nonsense written about military leaders. However, some do seem to inspire more …….affection? than others.
The Duke seems to have been quite a cold character and may have inspired respect if not love. I must admit that only a hopelessly one eyed critic could reject him as one of the Great Captains.
As for comparing generals, that is difficult, often partisan and generally useless. There are so many variables that any meaningful judgement is impossible .
