Wellington.

He once said "War consists of getting what is on the other side of the hill, and if you'll excuse me, on the other side of this particular hill is Moltke's ass, and I must now go whup it."

I have to say I'm voting for Moltke just to destroy Wellington...

My plans seem to be failing.

I agree. I really thought this would be a close battle. Like I said before, the only reason anyone outside of England remembers Wellington is because he had the fortune of Napoleon (at his weakest) deciding to fight him at Waterloo.

Oh, that is a low blow!

India, Portugal, Spain, France- check his record out. Remarkable chap. Come the hour, cometh the man...

I do believe Napoleon was doing the attacking, Napoleon decided his own fate when he attacked the Prussians and British, Wellington had a very impressive record, i wonder if it is because he was British that some members are anti.
