What if they are absolute hard-asses?
Yeah, I can understand that men are better for the front. But that's not the topic here. Don't you know the difference between beating somebody up and making somebody else beat somebody up?
Yeah, and if you put any random guy in the position of general, he wouldn't do much better at it than any random fucking women; they'd both be fucking awful at it. When you put someone in charge of troops, you put people who've shown they have with the skill for it, because you know they'll do a better job than any random fuck, and those skills don't have much of anything to do with preconceived notions of their qualifications based on shit that might have a strenuous link with it.
What if they're hot?

I'd lick the boots of a female general anytime.
99% of series that do this aren't remotely realistic to begin with, so there's no reason to be complaining. I mean, if that's really what's preventing you from enjoying Nobuna or Kingdom, you need to go get diagnosed.
Officers start in front line positions as well, Rommel's first action was attacking a French village garrison with 3 other men, Paton's was leading 10 men to attack 3 Mexicans, Zhukov started as a cavalry grunt and worked his way up through NCO positions first, Montgomery was shot leading his men in WW1, Yamamoto took some shrapnel to the stomach when being an ensign at Tsushima.
