Bernard Montgomery. Fought both world wars, born of Anglican Priest in England, cute when riding a tank, born November 17th, 1887, and died March 24th, 1976, at the age of 88. Oh... Huh... Just thinking about him and Helen Goff's times... It's interesting how history can run into history, even though those two historic things don't have anything to do with each other.
Friedrich Wilhelm Ernst Paulus was an officer in the German military. He attained the rank of Generalfeldmarschall (field marshal) during World War II, and is best known for having commanded the Sixth Army's assault on Stalingrad during Operation Blue in 1942. Hitler expected Paulus to commit suicide, citing the fact that there was no record of a German field marshal ever being captured alive. While in Soviet captivity during the war Paulus became a vocal critic of the Nazi regime.
Gebhard Leberecht von Blücher was a Prussian Generalfeldmarschall (field marshal) who led his army against Napoleon I at the Battle of the Nations at Leipzig in 1813 and at the Battle of Waterloo in 1815 with the Duke of Wellington. The honorary citizen of Berlin, Hamburg and Rostock bore the nickname "Marschall Vorwärts" ("Marshal Forwards") because of his approach to warfare.
