Realm & Empire 'General Monty' Men's Retro photo print T-shirt. The subject of this fab Retro Tee is one of Britain's most successful military commanders, Bernard Law Montgomery or 'Monty' as he affectionately became known. In 1940 he commanded an infantry division during the evacuation of Dunkirk and in 1942 he led the Eighth Army to victory at the Second Battle of Alamein. It was victory in this battle which changed the fortunes of the allied forces in the North African campaign, truly a major turning point in the Western Desert war. Field Marshal Montgomery was also in command of all Allied ground forces during Operation Overlord from the initial landings until after the Battle of Normandy. Monty also named his pet spaniel after his German arch rival, Rommel (who was nicknamed the Desert Fox for his exploits in the Western Desert war). A candid photograph still exists of Monty and Churchill sitting together with the latter stroking Rommel, the dog that is!

Realm & Empire 'General Monty' Men's Retro short sleeve crew neck T-shirt in grey marl with monotone photo print of the legendary military commander, Bernard Law Montgomery, the Spartan General. Red General typography adds to the images visual appeal. Finished with Realm & Empire signature tab to lower left side. A stylish Vintage print T-shirt that pays homage to the great Field Marshal 'Monty'. Crafted from soft premium cotton.

On the eve of Operation Overlord, the allied invasion of occupied Northern Europe, General Montgomery issued a rallying cry to British troops, the brave men who were about to risk their lives on D-Day.

... And, as we enter the battle, let us recall the words of a famous soldier spoken many years ago :

'He either fears his fate too much,
Or his deserts are small,
Who dare not put it to the touch,
To win or lose it all. "

Good luck to each one of you. And good hunting on the main land of Europe.
