This column is about an Australian general who gave Rommel and his Afrika Korps a tough time of it throughout the North Africa campaign (1940 - 1943):

Lt. General Leslie Morshead (1889 - 1959), a smallish, red-faced, leatherneck man who is beyond question one of the ablest fighting generals the United Nations have. He is the man who, with his troops, held Tobruk for eight months last year. He entered the last war as a private and ended it as a colonel."

When his work was concluded in the Middle East, Morshead was transferred to the South West Pacific Theater where he commanded troops in New Guina and Borneo.
