Hello Humberto,

I'll start off with the (Not a General)British Naval Captain Sidney Smith who defeated Napoleon at the Siege at Acre in 1799. I'll have to look through the books.

thanks,

I haven't found anyone so far that has a perfect record against Napoleon.

Don't forget about Lord Nelson who destroyed the French fleet at the Nile.

I watched the movie Patton the other day. Patton defeated Rommels plan so he defeated Rommel??? It was Napoleon that ordered the fleet to anchor.

thanks,

barry

Humberto,

Ahmad Pasha al-Jazzar was the Ottoman governor of Sidon at the siege of Acre who was in charge of the successful defense of that city from 20 March until 21 May 1799, aided as Barry has written by the British Naval Captain Sydney Smith.
