During the second world each major allied country had a top general over seeing the entire armies operation, these generals were Marshal Zhukov for the USSR, General Eisenhower for the united states and Field marshal Montgomery for the UK. There is major dispute on which one of these generals was the best and the goal of this post is to decide that via a poll/debate but first I feel its necessary to provide an overview of each ones tactics. Marshal Zhukov: Marshal Zhukov is a special case here considering he is widely hailed as the defeater of Germany (after Stalin and the US) even though he wasn't that much more humane than his German counterparts. Zhukov relied on old school cavalry tactics breaking through enemy lines using his sheer numbers to match his enemies skill and equipment, it is a lesser known fact that Zhukov had little to no regard for the lives of his soldiers when he was heard saying that "men can die, Russian mothers will give us new ones". General Eisenhower: Eisenhower's tactics were rather simple and the most modern out of any one of these generals, not requiring much explaining he used a combination of airpower, armour and infantry in blitzkrieg style attacks to defeat his enemy Field Marshal Montgomery. Field Marshal Montgomery has a troubled legacy having earned his fame in north Africa after defeating Erwin Rommel's Afrika Korps with very careful tactics, even once disobeying Churchill's order to go on the offensive when he didn't have the sufficient resources to do so. However after the Normandy landings everything that made him a good general seemed to vanish, this became clearly evident in operation market garden, as well as many other instances. Please feel free to debate, hope you enjoyed the post!
