Definitely George Washington and Hitler
Hitler is overrated?

He gets blamed for failure only.

Spoiler
Not saying he's underrated though!

Churchill; He should be hated in the UK, brought about the end of the Empire after all.

guys lets not focus on American generals too much and keep things related to Europe

I'd say William I, Prince of Orange.

Incorrect title. It's either 'The Prince of Orange' or 'William I, Soevereign Ruler/King of the United Netherlands/King of the Netherlands'.

Nixon why are you such a twat?
Probably one of the very few old-timers here who hasn't been a regimental leader.

You're wrong he was both King William I, and Prince of Orange. If we were alive in 1815 then you'd be right but from a strictly historical point of view you can call him both. It's like saying General, President De Gaulle

One of the best side blockers in the game. Often reffered as 'the Sideblock King'.
