For the novel it would obviously be Zhuge Liang.

Historically it would be tougher to say but I would still say Zhuge Liang is the overall best followed by Lu Xun.

Zhuge Liang Hands down.... He is the best strategist ever was in the 3k period... and excellent strategist and a very brilliant civil officer....

Second I would choose Lu Xun... because he is a balance package, know his limit... And had a good insight...

Lastly Sima Yi... because as far as I can see he is not a capable administrator...

Zhuge Liang both times but Zhou Yu makes it a closer run thing. Sima Yi comes last everytime IMO.

Yu's only real acheivement was the battle of Chi Bi ( don't get me wrong this was amazing) but he'd been Sun Ce's rearguard when he was taking Wu. He died to early to do much else. It was Meng that really took Jing historically whereas Zhuge Liang although his not as good as ROTK portrays he was still fantastic. Don't get me wrong though i prefer both Zhou Yu and Lu Xun to him though.

Being greatness not count on how many battles you have won, but we must see it at many aspects such as how the conditions, the strength, valuable officer and general, etc. :)
Still Zhou Yu is praised ZGL with his quote " If God has created Zhou Yu, then why he let ZGL born too ". I think that the answer.
