According to novel... and let me apologize in advance if I misspell the character's/place's names. I read the story in Korean (over 100 times, at least) and phonetically they sound very different.

Shu
Zhang Fei (Chang Ban bridge, taking care of the strings of fortresses during the invasion of the Riverlands, facing off Ma Chao)
Guan Yu (Hua Xiong, defending and governing the Jing district, defeating Yu Jin at Fan)
Zhao Yun (Best general of Shu imo... protecting baby Liu Chan, facing off Wen Chou as a TEENAGER, securing Zhuge Liang's safety in Wu, rescuing Liu Bei after Yi Ling, his final battle)
Huang Zhong (Facing off Guan Yu, single-handedly conquering Han Zhong, defeating Zhang He, killing Xiahou Yuan)
Guan Xing/Zhang Bao (died waaay too young, but without them Shu-Han would have been destroyed a lot sooner than it had)

Wu
Huang Gai (Chi Bi, helped Sun Jian in the old days, helped Sun Ce build Wu)
Zhou Tai (quite possibly the most underrated general of all times...)
Gan Ning (his death sucked, but the raid with 100 men is enough to put him up on this list)
Lu Xun (can't be considered a tactician like Zhuge Liang... led waay too many battles in person for that, and he is listed as an able leader(warrior) among with Ding Feng and Pan Zhang when he is introduced)
Ling Tong

Wei
Xiahou Yuan (described as Cao Cao's right hand)
Zhang He (caused Zhuge Liang quite the trouble before he died)
Xiahou Dun (my favorite general... can't get over the whole eye thing... how does he do so well with only one eye (and therefore no depth-perception?)
Zhang Liao (He deserves to be on this list, mainly b/c of He Fei)
Xu Zhu (His son was a moron, but he was (I believe) the most able in combat)
