Monty, It would be entirely unfair of me to criticize your tactics during the second war, or your character, which by all accounts was a decidedly mixed affair. You were a great general, and you played an important part in one of the world's great conflicts. Your temperament, however, apparently left a great deal to be desired, and you have come off rather poorly in American accounts of the war. I suppose talent and temperament go hand in hand. After all, where would armies be without ego. We might even stop fighting one another altogether, and that would never do. In any case, I salute you, and to whatever extent thanks is owed, I thank you. RIP

Well Operation Market garden went well.When he was appointed to command the 8th Army in 1942 he was the second choice. The original first choice was William Gott, whose plane was shot down on the way back to Egypt.And worst of all Im from England and Monty is vastly overrated. He cost the lives of thousands of allied troops with his lets get in there approach.Sleep well now Monty... Im sure you are answering all the questions on the otherside..
