From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

General of the Army is a military rank used in some countries to denote a senior military leader, usually a General in command of a nation's Army. It may also be the title given to a General who commands an Army in the field.

The rank is typically considered the equivalent of Marshal, Field Marshal, Fleet Admiral, Da Jiang, Wonsu, Mushir and other equivalent "5 star ranks". The rank of Grand General, which may also be considered a General of the Army equivalent, has appeared most often in fiction, although it is the literal translation of Da Jiang.

The rank of "General of the Army" should not be confused with the title "Army General"; the rank of "General of the Army" is usually the equivalent of a 5 star rank, and theoretically corresponds to overall command of an entire national army, whereas the title of "Army General" is usually held by the equivalent of a 4 star general, and corresponds to the command of an individual army in the field.
