Unfortunately, I don’t have the cites, but I was watching a program on The History Channel a few years ago, which among other things gave a rundown of the Allied Campaign through Italy in WW II.
It also gave a rather scathing opinion on General Clark, giving the opinion that he wasted more lives than necessary through some poor planning in one (or more) battle(s).
Again, I don’t remember the details, but I do remember the commentary. It went something like referring to his action as committing murder (to his own troops).
I find it hard that such an incompetent commander would then be named commander of another Allied force, less than a decade later in Korea.
Can someone shed some light?
