I'm not sure Hank is right, considering the question wasn't about Germans...

Basically, diplomatic power was essential, but in the period you are talking about generals play an imperative role because of the wars going on (I.e. The war between England and France and the war of 1812). Napoleon WAS a general. Technically speaking, any president is a general. You could argue the validity of the question it's self because of that contradiction.

U. S. (American) History has been a hobby of mine for many a moon. When you understand history, you understand basic concepts and ideas. You will learn about cause and effect, relationships and human nature. I seem to have this "savior complex" due to which I seem to be automatically attracted to people who need my help on a daily basis. Since we are the only critters on the planet, how about joining me? Pleasure and satisfaction are your rewards. Remember to spend some time with your loved ones, because they are not going to be around forever. Remember, say a kind word to someone who looks up to you in awe, because that little person soon will grow up and leave your side.
