New General question
Why is a Lieutenant General a higher rank than a Major General ?


Sheesh..

Ashton
whose mil. school career concluded with 3 possible appointments to West Point; declined.. I mean if they don't even know about lts. VS majors.
New Because they have bigger guns? :-)
New Re: General question
I'm guessing here, but it's probably two completely different meanings of the word 'Lieutenant', one being a rank, the other meaning assistant or deputy, as in Lord Lieutenant of a county, who is the Queen's representative when she does not attend an event, and her assistant when she does.

qts
New For pete's sake.
Google, and straightdope. And THEN if you don't find the answer........ :)
