While his height is treated like a military secret by British historians, a careful analysis of pictures of Monty standing next to individuals whose heights were no secret would make this a reliable estimate...assuming Monty's lifts were just 1" or less. While height and appearnce do have some impact on the effectiveness of an individual as a leader in the long run success is the best measure. By this standard Montgomery was better than adequate. In fact, his Napoleonic complex probably accounted for some of his few bad decisions.
