    Not all military use the rank of Marshal, usually called a Field Marshal. It is equal to a US five star general. It usually is the highest rank in the military. The USA in peace time only goes up to the four star GENERAL rank. Technically, anyone in the Army is called a soldier, from the raw recruit to the highest ranking officer. However usually soldier is used to refer to the enlisted ranks.

    A soldier is anyone in the Army (any rank, enlisted or officer)

    A General is a high ranking Army or Air Force Officer.

    A Marshal - Term not used in the U.S. Military.

    A soldier is anyone in an army. Marshal and general are ranks in the military at the top of the rank structure.

    Fighters in the Army are called soldiers.

    There are many ranks the British army, the lowest is Private, the highest is Field Marshall.

    A General is just beneath Field Marshall.
