I agree with you that the Brits are our allies but Montgomery was a very poor operational planner Think Dieppe and the Invasion of Holland. Both debacles and both planned by Monty.

(Daddy, how many US soldiers have to die in defense of Freedom? Daughter, if necessary, all but 9.)
Both Monty and Patton were somewhat flawed individuals, What I objected to was the equating of one (or either, for that matter) to an Iraqi mass murderer
