Overview
Winston Churchill did not describe General Sir Charles Monro in the most glowing terms. Referring to Monro s brave decision to recommend a withdrawal from the Gallipoli disaster Churchill said: "He came, he saw, he capitulated." Monro was one of a handful of senior officers selected to command a division in 1914 with the British Expeditionary Force and he also led a corps and army on the Western Front as the war progressed. After Gallipoli he was instrumental in supporting the war effort from India as Commander-in-Chief and was directly involved in the aftermath of the Amritsar massacre by Brigadier-General Dyer. His earlier life included distinguished service on the North-West Frontier and in South Africa and he was responsible for dramatically improving tactics within the army."
