I study Classics, so I actually studied Alexander the Great. He's not necessarily the best general because a lot of his battle wins are luck or people submitting to him because he's nicer when people just give up, also he's kinda a dick and only gets more dickish as time goes on buuuut he's my homeboy, so I have to choose him <31

Alexander the Great was the greatest.
He was undefeated despite usually being outnumbered and fighting on enemy soil and conquered the greatest empire there ever was at the time. He pushed the boundaries of what was possible and was pretty much unbeatable. His legacy shaped the region for centuries afterwards.
Napoleon was hugely charismatic and brilliant but he did lose twice. I don't know too much about Adolphus but from what I do know, he doesn't make the top 3 in my opinion.
Leonidas' one famous battle ended with his death so I think that rules him out. Washington and Eisenhower shouldn't make this list in my opinion. If they do, why not Rommel, Georgy Zhukov, Bernard Montgomery or von Manstein?
People who I think should've made the list are Genghis Kan (created the largest land empire ever), Hannibal Barca (terrified the Roman Empire), Khalid ibn al-Walid (also undefeated) and possibly Alexander Suvorov (also undefeated though I don't know too much about him).
