Sir Bernard Law Montgomery  Social Studies World War II Famous People Biographies

This image depicts a photograph of Sir Bernard Law Montgomery (1887-1976).  He was a key military leader, for the Allies, during World War II.

During the Normandy invasion, Montgomery - already famous for his victory at El Alamein, in 1942, against Germany's Field Marshal Erwin Rommel - commanded all Allied troops in France.  He held that command position until September of 1944. 

Thereafter he was promoted to Field Marshall.

On the 4th of May, 1945, the German northern armies surrendered to Montomery at Lüneburg Heath (in the German state of Lower Saxony).

Outspoken and self-assured, Montgomery remains controversial.
