At the very top, I got Alexander the great, just right below, Hannibal, and then Julius Caesar, who would all probably make my top 5 generals of all time (along with Genghis and Napoleon)

In my top 10-20 (of all time), I would add Sciopio, Belisarius

In my top 60-30 phyruss and Atilla, Cyrus and Phillip II

In my top 100 (of all time), I got Pompey, maybe Constantine or Sulla
