Well if you read One Piece then using the Navy's power structure we have Marshall = Fleet Admiral (Sengoku, Sakazuki) and General = Vice-Admiral.

Marshal is the title btw, Marshall with two ll is the name of an American general which was one rank away from the highest army rank by the end of his career. Yep it's confusing, if america was using Marshal titles for the highest military authority we could have gotten Marshal Marshall~
I wouldn't say heaven and earth but Icta is 3 ranks above Jan right now, jan's exact title would be major general in english I suppose.
Sazaref is one rank below Jan as a brigadier general by now btw.
Safida was one rank above Jan's current rank that before being court martial-ed, so lieutenant general.
Polmi's relative is a 4star general, so one rank above what was Safida.

So calling Ikta "the Impenetrable Lazy General" is kind of pointless now.

You're forgetting there's a translation in between.
将  in japanese designates all grades of generals, including marshal and generalissimo.

Hopefully when Vol 14 comes out, someone will post a short summary of it.
