Bernard Law Montgomery, was born in 1987, and was a descendant of Gabriel, Earl of Montgomery.
During the first world war, he participated as a lieutenant fighting in France, where his unit suffered heavy losses during the battle of Mons.
Later, he was wounded by the shooting of a German sniper.
The sergeant who came to his aid was killed by the same sniper, and his body covered the future marshal's, preventing him from being shot.
For this action he was decorated with the order of distinguished services.
He ended the war with the rank of lieutenant colonel.
In the period between wars he served in India, where he annoyed his superiors, for the extreme puritanism with which he applied discipline to his soldiers.
The Second World War began, retreating with the British army corps to the beaches of Dunkirk. In 1942, he obtained the command of the eighth army, in Africa, where in spite of the British superiority over the German Africa Korps, he acted with caution, allowing the victory over the Germans to arrive after the American support, after the disembarkation of these in Tunisia . After this, accompanied by the US Army, he disembarks in Italy, trying to compete with General Patton in the achievement of objectives.
He convinced President Eisenhower to carry out what would be disastrous for the allies, Operation Marquet Garden. The planning and development of this operation resulted in a crushing defeat before an enemy supposedly in retreat, with an important cost in human lives, which also formed the most important elite forces of the allied army.
