 Is "Generalissimo" Offensive? - Strike 3 Forums
A generalissimo is a commissioned officer of the highest rank; the word is often translated as "Supreme Commander" or "Commander in Chief".

The term "Generalissimo" in English has come to refer to a kind of ruler who has ascended to that position by a military coup.
