Army general is the highest ranked general officer in many countries that use the French Revolutionary System. 

In countries that adopt the general officer four rank system, it is rank of general commanding an army in the field, but in countries that adopt the general officer three rank system, the rank of the army corps general is not used and it becomes the rank immediately above the divisional general. Becauses a rank to command the corps and its senior units.

Army general is normally the highest rank used in peacetime.

The equivalent position in the Commonwealth, U.S., and several other countries is simply termed general, four-star rank, or informally "full general".

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.
