Having read a fair amount about General Patton- Patton, hands down. His ethics, his morals, his desire not to lose men.

Yes, he pushed his men hard, that is true. But, he also pushed himself just as hard.

Any thing worth shooting is worth shooting once.

Eisenhower was the supreme supreme commander, if I may make the pun. Consider that he had to coordinate and manage a pretty broad range of allies, both in military strategies and temperaments. I think he was the ideal man for the job. Both MacArthur and Patton were battlefield generals. MacArthur, the quintessential "old soldier", had a bit more vision than Patton who was more like a pit bull on steroids when it came to objectives. MacArthur turned out to be the optimum commander for Occupied Japan, understanding them much better than many other Westerners. In short, all three excelled at what they were best at.

Not U.S. but my choice would be Erich Von Manstein.

Thankfully (for the Russians) Hitler didn't give him full control over his under-strength and overstretched army with the idiotic policy of "hold ground at all costs"
