An in-depth profile of Field Marshal Bernard Law Montgomery, or as he is known fondly ‘Monty’, as we learn the story of his strategic marvels and mistakes. We see a military leader whose strategy in wartime led the Allies to extraordinary success against all the odds.

The programme pieces together one of Britain’s most complex military characters and looks at how he led British forces to victories in the Second World War after overcoming one of the biggest mistakes of his career Operation Market Garden.
