I kept expecting the Axis Forces to turn the battle and the war but it didn't happen. The loss of the greatest battlefield General of the war only hastened the eventual defeat of the Axis Forces in North Africa. Great characterization of Monty. Never fought a battle unless he had overwhelming firepower on his side. Sparing of his soldier's lives. My kind of General. In battle unbeatable. In victory unbearable; Churchill. Was Winston a wee bit jealous.
