MONTY: IN LOVE AND WAR: THE LIFE OF FIELD MARSHAL VISCOUNT MONTGOMERY OF ALAMEIN (Color, 1987, 1 Hour 16 Minutes)
Incisive 1987 BBC documentary produced in association with the Australian Broadcasting Corporation, written and by presented by Nigel Hamilton. History is written not only by the victors, its specifics are written by each victor individually. In many American treatments of the subject of World War II, Montgomery's contributions are acknowledged respectfully at best, quite grudgingly rather often and patronizingly at worst. This production seeks not to discount the many personal and professional shortcomings of this man who on many occasions infuriated his subordinates and his allies, far from it, it makes certain that they are underscored; nevertheless, it makes certain to secure the assertion that he was a brilliant military commander whose triumphs were well merited and whose criticisms of Allied strategy and operations were often prescient and largely quite correct. The British and ANZAC nations will find it quite satisfying to view this documentary give Monty his due; ironically Americans will enjoy it even more for the opportunity it provides to put this man and his contributions to the war effort in a new and fascinating light, while at the same time challenging the time-honored beliefs about the war in Europe that this documentary sets out to correct.

Four excellent episodes from the great epic TV documentary series featuring an account from a soldier from each side of a particular battle, in this case chosen from among the major military milestones in Monty's wartime operations.
Bernard Montgomery, 1st Viscount Montgomery of Alamein, KG, GCB, DSO, PC, DL, (November 17, 1887 - March 24, 1976), nicknamed "Monty" and the "Spartan General", English field marshal who fought in both wars of the European Civil War: the First European War (the First World War) and the Second EuropeanWar (the Second World War) was born Bernard Law Montgomery in Kennington, Surrey in south London, England. He saw action in the First World War as a junior officer of the Royal Warwickshire Regiment. At Meteren, near the Belgian border at Bailleul, he was shot through the right lung by a sniper, during the First Battle of Ypres. He returned to the Western Front as a general staff officer and took part in the Battle of Arras in April/May 1917. He also took part in the Battle of Passchendaele in late 1917 before finishing the war as chief of staff of the 47th (2nd London) Division. In the inter-war years he commanded the 17th (Service) Battalion, Royal Fusiliers and, later, the 1st Battalion, Royal Warwickshire Regiment before becoming commander of 9th Infantry Brigade and then General Officer Commanding (GOC) 8th Infantry Division. During the Second World War he commanded the British Eighth Army from August 1942 in the Western Desert until the final Allied victory in Tunisia in May 1943. This command included the Second Battle of El Alamein, a turning point in the Western Desert Campaign. He subsequently commanded the British Eighth Army during the Allied invasion of Sicily and the Allied invasion of Italy. He was in command of all Allied ground forces during Operation Overlord from the initial landings until after the Battle of Normandy. He then continued in command of the 21st Army Group for the rest of the campaign in North West Europe. As such he was the principal field commander for the failed airborne attempt to bridge the Rhine at Arnhem, and the Allied Rhine crossing. On May 4, 1945 he took the German surrender at Luneburg Heath in Northern Germany. After the war he became Commander-in-Chief of the British Army of the Rhine (BAOR) in Germany and then Chief of the Imperial General Staff (1946-1948). He then served as Deputy Supreme Commander of NATO in Europe until his retirement in 1958. Montgomery died from unspecified causes in 1976 at his home Isington Mill in Isington, Hampshire, aged 88.
