The General had similarities to Patton, but Patton is my favorite, all business with a flare and deep concern for his fighting men like MacArthur. It would be good to see George Washington contrasted against these two great Generals, as I believe our Greatest General was George Washington, his love for God and country was inspiring to all. All three Generals believed in God, in Country, and what they were doing was just and right, and in some cases went beyond their call to duty --they listen to the President or pretended with a wink or at times ignored as if they did not hear or understand, or did exactly what they believed had to be done at the time to win the war. When you watch these movies you definitely see how politics enters into all the decisions, and maybe the jealousy of others or the Generals to want to lead and be recognized for their great or their expected achievements. I also enjoyed watching the German General Rommel. and the British General Montgomery. War is ugly, but it is also important to understand the causes, the politics, the strategies, and the motivations of the leaders running the wars.
