Nigel Hamilton presents a brilliant, arrogant Montgomery, who refused to bow to authority and skated on the edge of dismissal. Despite this, Montgomery became one of the two most successful Allied field generals in World War II. From North Africa through the invasion of Sicily, he and Gen. George S. Patton routed the Germans in battle, with the rival Patton as a thrusting cavalryman and Montgomery as an infantry commander devoted to applying massive force at the vital point. Hamilton contends that Montgomery's planning and leadership transformed Operation Overload from a second front project doomed to fail, into a successful Allied invasion plan.
