"I once got in an argument with a British leftist who said it was a huge defeat for the Americans."

Remind your limp-wristed British friend that Montgomery didn't win ANY battles of significance, and ask him to prove you otherwise.

I don’t like Montgomery, he was an arrogant, condescending and obnoxious upper class twit who never missed a chance to throw a dig at American soldiers and their fighting capability. The British participation in the Bulge was minimal at best but that didn’t stop this arrogant prick from giving a press conference where he said in so many ways that the Yanks had really made a mess of the situation and he came in and saved the day. I have known many veterans of the Bulge and who served in North Africa and Italy and they still to this day hate the man. I remember one vet who told me “I’d a shot that Limey son of a bitch quicker than I’d a shot Hitler’’. But he did make a success at El Alamien. But you can point out to any limp wristed Brit that his “Operation Market-Garden’’ was an unmitigated failure.
