From the list I would have to say - Rommel

I have always been fascianted by the guy in that he keep his officer integritity even when having to deal with the nazis around him...

Alexander should also come in for a mention as the son of the Sun God - That guy really knew his stuff, took risks and lead from the front which not many generals ever did afterwards.

From the list, I would say Rommel. Rommel accomplished some amazing victories while often heavily outnumbered or otherwise logistically weak. This speaks well of his leadership and tactics/strategy. That's the same reason I would include Robert E Lee (and the fact that my great great grandfather served in the Army of Northern Virginia).

Napoleon, Patton, etc usually had enormous resources at their disposal.
