It’s nice to see a fair consideration of Montgomery, as popular history and movies consider little beyond his vanity. It’s important to understand that Monty didn’t have the vast resources of men and materials that the Americans had, and so he needed to be more methodical.

He did beat Rommel in the second battle of El-Alamein in open field tank warfare, so Monty is due some respect.
