Field Marshal Bernard Law Montgomery was the outstanding British military commander of World War II and Britain’s greatest general since the Duke of Wellington. And his victory in the Battle of Normandy in 1944 dwarfed Wellington’s crowning triumph at Waterloo, in 1815.

Montgomery has been out of fashion with both British and American historians in recent generations.
