Ramseur, look at what the British Army War College has to say of Lee. It is not all complimentery. I call that profesional soldiers of the highest order. Some who have held a less than impressed opinion of Lee would be Generals like Montgomery & Kesserling... both professional soldiers and both of the highest order.

I believe Montgomery stated that both Meade and Lee should have been cashiered for their actions at Gettysburg.

Kesserling believed Lee to have been overrated, especially his actions during the 7 days battles and during the Petersburg campaign.

In my own opinion Montgomery was overrated in his own right and am more liekly to give some weight to the thoughts and opinion of Kesserling.
