I've heard that Napoleon wasn't a great military leader and that his generals did a lot of the leading for him.

You've heard wrong tbh

Austerlitz alone was a stroke of pure military genius. He was also what I would describe as a "complete commander" - by which I mean not only was he a master of battlefield tactics, but a masterful strategist/campaigner and an inspirational leader as well. Always maneuvering into advantageous positions, dividing allied opponents attempting to join forces and routing them each in detail, encircling entire armies (case in point being the Ulm Campaign), etc.

He became almost lazy as he got older and started using more direct tactics (arguably losing some of his genius) but even in the Hundred Days days campaign he frustrated Wellington with his movements ("Napoleon has humbugged me, by God; he has gained twenty-four hours' march on me").

Napoleon is truly a god for the things he accomplished. By far my favorite leader.

No, he was not a great leader and I think history will confirm that. He was the reason why 3 million+ Germans lost their lives. Not to mention the 6 million Jews he gas to death. Hitler is the definition of a complete asshole with no sympathy for people. A complete narcissist. He was good at rhetorics and painting but it all ends there. If you knew something about Hitler as a military leader you would have known that he had no idea of what he was doing. He disregarded all military council from his generals and he was one of the main reason's why Germany lost the war. His atrocities against the civilians of Poland and Russia was unspeakable. I don't know how many innocent civilians he killed but the number is staggering. He fired some of Germany's best generals in Heinz Guderian, Eric Von Manstein and Erwin Rommel. Then he replaced them with puppets and fanatics like Walter Model and Keitel.

Maybe he wasn't but there are people on here who legit think it.

That's an interesting hypothesis
