DOES ANY ONE KNOW WHY THE BRITISH GENERAL STAFF I.E.

GENERAL ROBERT MONTGOMERY

LT GENERAL BROWNING

LT GENERAL HORROCKS WERE NOT "COURT MARTIALED""????

FOR THEIR BLUNDER AND FAILURE OF SO MANY ALLIED PARATROOPERS

KILLED AND WOUNDED.

 

THE SCAPEGOAT OF POLISH  MAJOR GENERAL SOSABOWSKI  WAS

USED TO TAKE THE HEAT  OFF THE BRITISH COMMANDERS.

BUT LATER GENERAL SOSABOWSKI WAS HONOURED.

 

WHY DIDN'T GENERAL EISENHOWER DO HIS DUTY AND HAVE

THEM COURT MARTIALED.??

UNFORTUNATELY, GENERAL MONTGOMERY PRIOR TO MARKET GARDEN DID ANOTHER STUPID MILITARY MISTAKE. THIS COST THE BRITISH 200 TANKS AND MEN DESTROYED IN CAEN FRANCE, IN ONE DAY, HIS PLAN TO TAKE CAEN'S I 1-3DAYS TOOK HIM 3-4 WEEKS SLUGGING IT OUT WITH THE GERMANS, TRYING TO USE ARTILLERY, INSTEAD OF A FRONTAL, ATTACK, WHICH IN THE END, HE HAD TO DO ANYWAY. DID HE GET A METAL FOR THIS TOO??

REGARDING MARKET GARDEN , I HAD TWO UNCLE'S IN THE 101ST AND 82ND AIRBORNE, THAT WERE KILLED AT MARKET GARDEN, I BLAME THE BRITISH TO SOME DEGREE..

THE BRITISH GENERALS, INCOMPETENCE ESPECIALLY MONTGOMERY. FOR EXAMPLE THE , THE ONLY REASON THAT THEY WON IN NORTH AFRICA WAS THE STUBORNNESE OF THE AUSTRAILA'S  AND THE SUPPLY'S (ROMNEL NEVER HAD), AND THE SUPPORT OF THE AMERICANS. 

NOW GENERAL PATTON SAID, THAT MONTY WAS A PREMADONNA, PATTON ADMITTED HE WAS ALSO, BUT MONTY NEVER WOULD.  I DON'T BELIEVE HE SHOULD HAVE BEEN "KNIGHTED BY THE QUEEN"> I DON'T RECALL ANY AUSTRAILA'S BEING KNIGHTED, FOR TOBRUK ..

 GEN. PATTON LEAD HIS TROOPS FROM THE FRONT OF THE COLUMN AND GENERAL MONTGOMERY LEAD FROM THE REAR, LIKE SO MANY OTHER GENERAL'S(NO BALLS FOR COMBAT AT THE FRONT).

REASONS: I RECENTLY REVIEWED THE TWO FILMS PLUS HISTORICAL RECORDS OF :"THE BRIDGE TO FAR",

MARKET GARDEN EXAMPLE ( HOW STUPID FOR THE BRITISH GENERAL STAFF TO CARRY THE TOTAL PLANS OF MARKET GARDEN ON A GLIDER, THAT CRASHED AND KILLED EVERYONE ABROAD AND THE GERMANS FOUND THE PLANS OF THE ENTIRE MARKET GARDEN OPERATIONS. NOW WHO TAKES CREDIT FOR THAT SCOTTISH BLUNDER??

THE AMAZON VIDEO  TO INCLUDE "SILENCE PATTON:"> THIS IS A INTERESTING NOTE OF POSSIBLE SUBVERSION

ON THE PART OF THE  ALLIES AND THEY WERE AFRAID OF GEN. PATTON. HE WAS GOING TO "SPILL THE BEANS:. ON THE WHOLE ALLIED FIASCO'S NOT JUST MONTY.

WHO PREDICTED THAT THE RUSSIAN'S WERE OUR NEXT REAL ENEMY, AFTER THE NAZI'S AND HE WAS RIGHT.

GEN. PATTON, SAID, WE HAVE TRAINED ARMY IN EUROPE, NOW. NOW IS THE TIME TO ELIMINATE COMMUNISM, WHAT DID IT COST IN POUNDS AND DOLLARS AND MEN AND MATERIAL TO RESIST AND FIGHT THE "COLD WAR",  

WE HAD THE A BOMB FOR BACK UP AND NO DOUBT PRESIDENT TRUMP COULD USE IT AGAIN.

NO REMORSE FOR THE JAPS DURING WORLD WAR II, THAT WERE BRUTAL SAVAGES OF POW'S AND BASTARDS,

IN MANCHURIA, CHINA, ALL OVER ASIA, BUTCHERS, THEY GOT WHAT THEY DESIRED. .

SORRY, THAT I'AM RAMBLING ON HERE, ENOUGH FOR TODAY.    HAPPY NEW YEAR.

Where to begin ?  Tobruk, for example.  Are you aware of the career of Lt-GEN Sir Leslie "Ming the Merciless" Morshead ?  An Australian General, commanded at Tobruk - and knighted.

Your critique of Montgomery shows how little you know of the man. He was critically wounded in WW1- a young officer leading from the front. Actually,in his career, he saw more real combat than Patton. (By the way he wasn't "knighted by the Queen", but by her father George VI.)  But "Robert Montgomery"?

Perhaps you should read more.

THE TROOPS ARE EXPENDABLE, AND THE BLUNDERS OF WAR ARE JUST

COLLATERAL DAMAGES.  TO  END THIS CONVERSATION VIA EMAIL. GOOD BYE

How could you possibly know what my "mindset" is ?

Are you going to have a conversation or haven't you got what it takes ?
