What was Wellington like as a commander? How did he climb the ladder to seniority so swiftly? Where did he learn his craft, and what was unique about his operation 'art'?

Hopefully a contribution about Wellington's operational art of war will follow.
Despite I am the believe that it is impossible to say who was better Nabulieone or Wellington, it is always fascinating to listen to the reasoning.
Zack White is for example convinced that on a good day Napoléon would beat Wellington on a good day. I ask, in what sense, in the operational art of war - or as a tactician on the battle field??
Also at what time, in 1808 - 1812 - 1815?
Surely in 1815 the duo Wellington / Blücher proved to be superior on the operational art of war and Wellington on the battle field as tactician.
