Why are you not surprised? I did try, honestly I did, but it's all the fault of that bloody Kindle-thingie. I had just finished a book, a bit of nonsense from Tom Woods' very entertaining "Victor the Assassin" series and before I could stop myself my finger had prodded the 'History' section and, well, all was lost. I came across "The Battle for the Rhine" by the late Robin Neillands of whom I had never heard. From his Wiki entry he sounds like an interesting character and the fact that he was once a Corporal is, of course, all the qualification one needs to be a military historian - er, even if in his case he was a Corporal in the Royal Marines (pause to hawk and spit)!
I gather from the reviews of his book that he biffs and bashes the American generals, Eisenhower, Patton (natch!) and Bradley but over-praises 'Monty'. At this point, I was about to provide you all with my personal overview of the campaign across north-western Europe in 1944/5 - golly-gosh, I bet you can hardly wait - but dimly in the back of what passes for my memory a tiny bell rang and, completely without any assistance from my 'Chief Archivist', I found what I wrote nearly eight years ago! Now, I'm not one to repeat myself - and I heard that! - so I will leave you to read it for yourselves. My next task is to read Mr. Neillands' thoughts on the subject with parts of which, I fear, I might disagree, and then I will give you my opinion.
Military history is both fascinating and hugely enjoyable because, of course, as a reader you can see all the obvious errors made by the opposing Generals and one can remain in a state of high self-satisfaction, confident in the thought that you, yourself, would have handled the business very much better!
