As the board reads:

Field Marshal BL Montgomery (1887-1976)

Montgomery was one of the most inspirational British military leaders of the Second World War. After significant victories over German General Erwin Rommel in North Africa (1942-1944), he was promoted to Field Marshall in command of British and Canadian troops. Montgomery presided over the Battles of Arnhem and Normandy and accepted the formal surrender of the German military at Lüneburg Heath on May 4th, 1945. His flair for command and absolute belief in his infallibility made him a legendary, if not always popular, leader.
