Actually, I will apologize. To make any comparison between some sleaze ball in uniform and a Brit (one T) is un-called for. I guess I'm still a little ticked that Manchester United were the first team to sell out Seahawk Stadium.
I still think Monty was a little to stuck on being proper, professional, and Von Clauswitz at the expense of performance. But that could be my own bigotry speaking.
I also think the above quote from Patton declaring jews "..lower than animals", not being a complete sentence, is dependant on context for meaning. The auther would have used the entire sentence if it had supported his conclusion, IMO.
As for German's being the best people in Europe at the end of the war...I have to agree with him. France and Italy/Sicily were Bannana Republics in comparison. And the Arabs, please, they are walking proof that cultures are not created equally.

Your analysis of Monty is spot on, and don't worry about Manchester United, their day is done, they are in the process of being eclipsed by Chelsea as the World's pre-eminent team.
