Flowers left for Bernard Montgomery
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
- Em
