  • Bernard Montgomery was overrated to begin with..He was pompous/arrogant and stubborn(Rebelious in the truest sense of the word), he should have been removed for his insubordination.

    • Montgomery = the most successful Western Allied ground commander of WW2 by some way. He took more ground through more countries while facing more quality German opposition than any other Western Allied ground commander. If he was removed then who would the Americans gone running to in their self made mess in the Ardennes?

  • My great great uncle (My dads uncles adoptive father, I know, a really long title for how he is related to me) drove a half-track onto one of the beaches( I believe Omaha, I may be wrong) on the second day of operation overlord. He later captured a sig-sauyer pistol off of a Nazi officer in France, which we now have. Nice little anecdote I guess.

  • It is doubtful any American soldiers would have participated in this deadly confrontation , had they understood the politics , the profiteers , the propaganda apparatus , intentional break-down of diplomacy , The outrageous Versailles Treaty and so much more. To this day , the Globalists have too much influence on all aspects of society. Before another war , it must be essential to create "Articles of Truth". These would be the absolute truth as to what is leading to hostilities. Not the media lies. Then every soldier, on all sides must understand the reasons for hostilities , and sign these documents. If a soldier is going to risk their life , they have every right to know the truth. WW1 and WW2 would never have happened had all parties , soldiers included absolutely known all facts that led to war.
