I think I woulda been a good general... but who knows.
I would have been a terrible soldier. I hate taking orders from anyone, but in particular, I hate taking orders from people who are dumber than I am. I am also bad at delegating tasks to others, and thus, I would have been a lousy general. Fortunately, we have people in our country who are willing to do both of these types of tasks, and many are good at it.
