  Bernard Law Montgomery, 1st Viscount Montgomery of Alamein - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Montgomery was born in Kennington, London in 1887, the fourth child of nine to an Anglo-Irish Anglican priest, Revd.
Montgomery abhorred the lack of coordination, the dispersion of effort, and the strategic muddle and opportunism and was glad to leave the "dog's breakfast" on December 23.
Montgomery's preoccupation with the push to the Ruhr had also distracted him from the essential task of clearing the Scheldt during the capture of Antwerp, and so after Arnhem, Montgomery's group were instructed to concentrate on doing this so that the port of Antwerp could be opened.
