Synopsis

Michael Reynold's account compares the lives of Allied generals Bernard Montgomery and George Patton. Born two years apart, both were commissioned within a year of each other and both were wounded in France in the First World War. Both encompassed very different but very valuable characteristics in combat: Monty - careful and meticulous, Patton - dashing and diplomatic. Despite the differences, both generals demonstrated striking similarities: commitment to their careers, a ruthless egotism, interesting when you consider neither held superior command. This did not impeach their desire for the limelight and fame in warfare, arrogance and the manipulation of colleagues in high places to advance their careers. Both were machiavellian in their own affairs and self-interested in their own personal progression.Neither Monty nor Patton were pleasant people, they did not like the other very much, but their ambitious and calculating personalities make them fantastic subject material. Reynolds includes their contributions to the victory in North Africa and Europe as well as a superb overview of their respective command.Mike Reynolds is a former British infantryman who finished his career as Director of the Plans and Policy Division in NATO HQ in Brussels.

He is a recognised authority on Second World War operations in Europe.
