You know Hannibal led one army that killed more enemies in one day (armed men(Romans and at the batlte of cannae I think)) even up till now. So yeah, greatest general- Hannibal, he lost ultimately at the end because the Carthagian senate did not sent any troops to him directly


Genghis Khan was strong in his cavalry tactics and masterful in terror tactics
but when it comes to logistics intelligence Hannibal was a genius

To command an army of mercenaries that came from so many diverse backgrounds and to use each force to the out most against the organizational might of Rome was epic

Easy.....Gengis Khan:

He came to power by uniting many of the nomadic tribes of northeast Asia. After founding the Mongol Empire and being proclaimed "Genghis Khan", he started the Mongol invasions and raids of Kara-Khitan Khanate, Caucasus, Khwarezmid Empire, Western Xia and Jin Dynasty. During his life, the Mongol Empire eventually occupied substantial portion of Central Asia.

in terms of accomplishment i think genghis khan could be considered the greatest general..some of u guys are attributing sun tzu as a great military general but the fact of the matter is even the exsistance of sun tzu is highly debated..he is of course attributed to writing the art of war but i think he belongs in the greatest military writer category..

yup, whether or not sun tzu was an actual person is debated amongst historians. But setting that aside, if you believe that he is or want to include potentially fictitious or legendary figures in this, then you can't just say that he was only a writer or philosopher. According to other texts, he was a capable military commander and wrote his texts based on his experience.

also, empress wu zetian was a terrible military leader.

im my opinion is Muhamed he was father, husband, teacher, military leade,r friend, brother ,cousin e, and simply everything ( and he was the greatest).
is not only my opinion but
1)The 100: A Ranking of the Most Influential Persons in History is a 1978 book by Michael H. Hart. It is a ranking of the 100 people who most influenced human history.

What mainly surprised readers was the first person on Hart's list. Hart decided to choose Muhammad over Jesus or Moses despite the fact that Islam was not the largest religion. Hart attributes this to the fact that Muhammad was successful in both the religious and political realms. He also writes that Muhammad's role in the development of Islam is far more influential than Jesus's collaboration in the development of Christianity. He attributes the development of Christianity to St. Paul, who played a pivotal role in the dissemination of Christianity.
2)John William Draper's Testimony
said
"Four years after the death of Justinian, A.D. 569, was born at Makkah, in Arabia the man who, of all men exerciesed the greatest influence upon the human race .. MUHAMMAD .. "

Who is John William Draper ?
Draper, John William, 1811–82, American scientist, philosopher, and historian, b. near Liverpool, England, M.D. Univ. of Pennsylvania, 1836. In 1839 he became professor of chemistry at the Univ. of the City of New York. He helped organize the medical school of the university, became its professor of chemistry and physiology, and in 1850 succeeded as its president.

Most of his papers on radiant energy were republished in his Scientific Memoirs (1878). His Human Physiology (1856) was the leading textbook of the period in its field, and it contained his own admirable micro-photographs, the first ever published. In 1863 his History of the Intellectual Development of Europe was published, and in 1874 his History of the Conflict between Religion and Science, a rationalistic classic that aroused great controversy. His other works include History of the American Civil War (3 vol., 1867–70) and Thoughts on the Future Civil Policy of America (1865).
