While I sound like a Washington fanatic because of a previous post, I would have to go with George, Washington, not Patton. He formed an army out of nothing, kept it together besides a string of defeats, had to fight politically to keep his job, took huge risks, and in the end, defeated a far superior enemy, in what was the longest war we fought until Afghanistan. Whew! Oh, and Lee, married a family descendant (though not direct).
