My father's experience in The War was that officers who had been in the Army before the war were routinely useless; good officers were usually reservists or had come straight from civvy street.

Yes, that matches everything I have read of WWII. Also, I remember Montgomery, after a fairly ruthless cull, decided that he could not sack any more of his Divisional or Corps commanders because there was nothing better available to take their places. 'Plus ca change' ... and all that jazz!
