Who do you guys think was the outstanding British general of the war? For me it is Slim. As well as being well liked amongst his men, often a very telling point, he was a very accomplished field commander. He understood military tactics and logistics very well and had a very calm head on his shoulders when unexpected circumstances raised their head. With most of his work was comfined to the Far East theatre of war, he showed a very good understanding of the local enviroments and terrain and was able to work this to his advantage. His outflanking of the Japanese at Meiktila was an outstanding piece of military command. Any of you guys feel Monty deserves this accolade?
