|Don, I think you left out one I suggested which was RUTHLESSNESS. I put ruthlessness in a separate category from aggressiveness, because one can be aggressive, but ruthlessness takes that to the next level.
As the war wore on, battles began to be fought under the Black Flag principle...take no prisoners, etc. Also the concept of Total War began to take form. One had to be a ruthless general to fight a Total War. By the end of the war, generals who shrank from such a philosophy probably could not be called great.
