Does Subutai’s success diminish Genghis Khan?

The man conquered pretty much all the land across 65 pitched battles and everybody thinks Genghis is better then Subutai as a commander? I think Temujin was extremely lucky to have a general like that in his camp, and believes he deserves the majority of the credit. Is Temujin overrated?

Battle of Mu’tah, executed by Khalid Ibn Walid against the Byzantines. He was initially a foot soldier in this battle but after all 3 Muslim commanders had been killed, he took command of the army and saved his troops from what seemed to be an impending slaughter. What should of been a crushing defeat at the hands of the Byzantines turned into a tactical retreat with the vast majority of the Muslim army still alive. For him to rally his troops after morale was shattered speaks volumes on his charisma and leadership skills.
I see you're still spamming this crap after six years.

Goodbye.
