Scharnhorst probably would have made a decent general, but as an organizer and planner, he was an excellent staff officer. He accomplished very little on the battlefield, aside from the 1806 campaign, and any thought on how he would have fared as a commander are highly hypothetical.

POLL DESCRIPTION

First Empire magazine had a wonderful profile of Blucher in a recent issue. Which leads me to wonder who was the best Prussian general?
