Yeah, that's pretty fair. I'd say that Hannibal would again win in a pitched battle, but Han Xin had a better grasp of the big picture, and would win the war. IIRC, Han never directly engaged Xiang Yu unless he had a clear advantage (like at Gaixia) and instead went after Xiang's subordinates. This can be compared to the Fabian strategy that played a factor in Hannibal's eventual defeat.

We all know that Nobunaga Oda, Hideyoshi Toyotomi, Ieyasu Tokugawa, Uesugi Kenshin and Shingen Takeda were the best(Even do i hate Hideyoshi and Ieyasu), but after them who would you rate higher between :

Militarly i really wouldn't know, Washington is usually overestimated and Jiang Wei is usually underestimated, who knows, Jiang Wei might have won. Washington should have an edge for how he managed to save his country whereas Jiang Wei failed, even if the situation was almost the opposite.
Politically it would be Washington hands down.
