I think "it" refers to what Albert Castel in Decision in the West: The Atlanta Campaign called a "knack for war."

Castel was referring to Ulysses S. Grant when he used the expression to mean that Grant was "aggressive, tirelessly determined, cool and clear headed in a crisis, and, yes, at times lucky.

All those traits that Castel describes when taken as a whole in one package would describe a talented general.
