The main German generals in World War 2, ie, those who exerted the most influence:
Franz Halder: commander-in-chief of OKH, the land army branch, between the all important 1939 and 1942 years. Very able and professional, he was often at odds with Hitler and he lost his job during the Stalingrad debacle (which was none of his fault).
Gerd Von Rundstedt: An old Prussian style officer, one of the main army group commanders during the war. He did not like the growing power of Hitler in military... but was a faithful servant nonetheless.
Alfred Jodl: Chief of staff of OKW, the unified army command organization (land, kriegsmarine and Luftwaffe)... this organization was in fact the personal headquarters of Hitler... he was a professional with a good military mind, but certainly not a genius. And he was fully dedicated to his Furher... as such, Jodl was often in a position to influence Hitler, but usually failed to do so.
Erick Von Manstein: The greatest operational mind of the German army during the war, he was responsible for the Ardennes plan of attack in 1940 and for the reestablishment of the Ukraine front and the salvation of the German army in Russia in 1943 after the Stalingrad defeat.
Hermann Balck: Another great Panzer leader and military mind, probably the equal of Manstein.
Heinz Guderian: renowned Panzer warfare theorist before the war, Panzer leader in the field in Poland, France and Barbarossa and Chief Inspector of the Panzer arm between 1943 and 1945
Erwin Rommel: also the desert fox, a good Panzer leader, and a gambler with flair. But still a gambler who could be beaten as thoroughly through ambition as he could defeat enemies... an example of this is his opposition to the taking of Malta which would have permitted a better supply for his Africa Korps making it a lot stronger in middle term.
Fieldmarshal Walter Model: The favorite troubleshooter of Hitler in the later years of the war, he was often sent were things were bad to reorganize the troops and fronts. Committed suicide in 1945 after his army group was surrounded by the western allies.
Many others have been important:
Field Marshal Gunther Von Kluge, an army group commander not unlike Von Rundstedt, employed during most of the war
Field Marshal Ewald Von Kleist: another important and often employed army group commander
Field Marshal Fedor Von Bock: same as the above, but dismissed in 1941.
Field Marshal Wilhelm Ritter Von Leeb: same as the above, dismissed in 1941
Field Marshal Wilhelm Keitel: commander of OKW... but with less talent than Jodl his subordinate... a yes man, but still the only German commander-in-chief to retain his post throughout the war.
