For the army rank(s) of general, as opposed to the specific rank of army general, see general officer.
Army general is a title used in many countries to denote the rank of general nominally commanding an army in the field. Army general is normally the highest rank used in peace time.
The title "army general" should not be confused with the rank "general of the army", which is more senior, and corresponds to other countries' marshal or field marshal. The position of "general of the army" theoretically corresponds to overall command of an entire national army, while the position of "army general" only corresponds to the command of an individual army in the field.
