Don't you just love all the immigrants to England? Freed from the shackles of their homelands they seem to enjoy running down the mother of democracy that gives them a home.

Lets be honest its all about the Soldiers a general without his men is like a stadium without fans.

We share one of the best, I would say, in the Normandy era
- Guy Simonds - earlier inventor of the Kangaroo - an early APC.

By the way, I agree with you. Dowding may not have been a General but he was a general.

Talking of great Russian generals, shirley Vassily Chuikov must be up there for his spirited defence of Stalingrad?

Re: Who was the best British General of WW2
Surf, minor point, I think we lost who the best British general was when people started throwing in Nimitz, Patton and even Georgiy Zhukov for chrissakes

Re: Who was the best British General of WW2
Not really on topic

But I read a lot about Kurt "Panzer" Meyer when I was young, which I began for obvious reasons.

Scarily fanatical for someone so collected. Despite a still abiding disgust, I am not sure I could think of another general that gave you his combination of precious tactics and morale control.

True, but Keith Park was not only not a general, but also not British.

Re: Who was the best British General of WW2
I've always wondered what Nimitz was up to when the USS Nimitz turned back up at Pearl Harbour after going through that time warp.

Must have been a bit of a head scratcher.

Re: Who was the best British General of WW2
Hugh Dowding and Keith Park. Saw the bigger picture, bided their time, picked their fight, and won it.

zeb, I can't disagree with his generalship but I can his nationality

Re: Who was the best British General of WW2
Georgy Zhukov

Probably the single most influential commander of the war.

Re: Who was the best British General of WW2
To be fair, Nimitz was a desk General / Admiral in WWII albeit a very good one, the same could be said for Eisenhower
