I have no problem adding "luck" to the list.  Doesn't sound very academic, but there is no question that circumstances beyond the control of any of the parties have an effect on who we consider to be great generals.

It is a bit hard to cultivate this trait in officers who could advance to the level of a general.  On the other hand there is an old saying in sales: "The harder I work - the luckier I get."  Maybe all of these other qualities combine to make the great generals "lucky" as well.
