    Very interesting! Thank you for posting this. Just filled one gap more in my knowledge of history.

  4. If only Churchill would've let Wavell finish the job rather than getting distracted in Greece.

    It seems that almost every time a Politician tells military leaders what to do or places pressure on them to act it turns into a mess.

    @2bn442RCT It was not just Greece. Significant amounts of troops went to beat the Italians in Abyssinia and put down the revolt in Iraq.

    I would be curious to know how the gentleman interviewed knew how the Germans attacked at the time they said they would attack. Perhaps Rommel was ringing him to let him know!

    I thought I was the only person outside the US who had a negative opinion of Montgomery!

    @alanheath. I have a negative and positive opinion of him. As a political leader he was just plain awful. I wished Harold Alexander had commanded 21st Army Group, who was completely opposite to Monty's ways. He was respected and liked by his own men who worshiped him. How he changed the 8th Army around was truly amazing. In America the British receive little credit for anything.
