Crowdsourcing: Ten Worst American Generals

David Corn's tough-but-fair hit piece on Gen. Tommy Franks links to Tom Ricks' list of the 10 worst generals in US history, on which Franks ranks fourth.

I won't defend Franks, but the generals' list seems not very adequate to me. No way was George McClellan (listed) a worse general than Ambrose Burnside. And where's William Hull? Over to you military history buff readers: can you improve on Ricks' list?
