An interesting and well presented case in defence of the 21st Army Group, 2 Mar. 2014
This is an interesting yet easy read. It refutes much of the bad press that Monty and the British Army in general have attracted for the manner in which the North European campaign of 1944/45 was fought.
In doing so it evidences the fact that history is often interpreted in a manner that fits the requirement of the age. Hence in the 70 s & 80s when the tactics and approach adopted by the 21st army Group did not fit the requirements of the Cold War they were seen as "slow, risk averse etc".
