General Alexander and General Montgomery, 1942
This picture shows the newly appointed British command team in the Middle East, with General Sir Harold Alexander, commander-in-chief in the Middle East, and General Bernard Montgomery, commander of the Eighth Army, on the right. Alexander and Montgomery replaced General Auchinleck, who had been serving in both roles, after the First Battle of El Alamain, and proved to be a very succesful team.
