    Nice one Ned, I'll try and remember to watch this.

    Did you catch the Alamein program on Monday on the BBC? It was not great but worth a watch.
    Regards,

    Jerry

    Whatever its just an opinion.

    Hi Jerry,

    Yeah, I watched it and agree it was a bit lightweight at times, but these are made for wider audience appeal, and I think it suceeded in that. I liked the fact that it was pointed out how roughly handled Auchinleck was by an increasingly desperate Churchill, he had done extremely well under trying circunstances, and ensured that Rommel would never reach Cairo or the Suez Canal, only to be sacked unceremoniously after ignoring Churchill's increasingly unrealistic demands.

    Cue second choice Monty, after the unexpected death of first choice Gort, rocking up to take the glory. As he said, by then it "was a mathematical certainty" that the allies would win in the desert, and so it came to pass, albeit after the "killing match" that he predicted, and indeed came true with 13,500 allied casualties in 10 days....

    Regards, Ned.
