Montgomery’s assumption of command of the Eight Army transformed their fighting spirit and abilities. He took command on 13 August 1942, and immediately became a whirlwind of activity. He ordered the creation of the X Corps, which contained all armoured divisions, to fight alongside his XXX Corps, which was all infantry divisions.
Montgomery was determined that the army, navy and air forces should fight their battles in a unified, focused manner according to a detailed plan. He ordered immediate reinforcement of the vital heights of Alam Halfa, just behind his own lines, expecting the German commander, Erwin Rommel, to attack with the heights as his objective, something that Rommel soon did. Montgomery ordered all contingency plans for retreat to be destroyed. “I have cancelled the plan for withdrawal. If we are attacked, then there will be no retreat. At his first meeting with his officers, held in the desert, he told them “If we cannot stay here alive, then we will stay here dead.” We think a chilled pint of military beer might have gone down well at that point!
