D’Este tends to focus heavily on the British sector of the Normandy campaign, and he has an important reason for this; General Bernard Montgomery. The detailed planning of Operation Overlord was spearheaded by military commanders of Allied nations. Although, the post D-day plan of the campaign was dictated to the ground-commander of Normandy, British commander, General Bernard Montgomery. Montgomery, “Monty” as his nickname was, is followed closely by D’Este’s work. There is a chief criticism that surrounds Montgomery’s D-day+ plan, and this problem surrounds the Battles of Caen and Falaise. This criticism of Montgomery comes from his apparent lack of accepting adaptation when an operation doesn 't go as planned. For instance, the Allies did not capture Caen in the timely fashion Montgomery had thought, although instead of acknowledging the fact that his plan had backfired, he simply stated thats the way he planned it. Montgomery highly disliked admitting that he was fallible, and occasionally forced to improvise on a plan that would warrant success.

    Jenkins then removed the carefully folded newspaper from his inside jacket pocket, opening it up and beginning to read. Any changes in his after-church routine lay only in the words on the newspaper and the faces in the diner. He sat in silence for some time, reading the Sunday paper and sipping his cup of coffee, just as he had the Sunday before that, and the Sunday before that, and just as he would next Sunday, too. Occasionally, his eyes flicked up from the paper and he opened his mouth as if…

    barren, death laden landscape with minimum life forces as a presentation of the burden time has on an individual or, perhaps more expressively, as a presentation of the burden time has on the surrounding environment. By formulating a hallucinatory image of pocket watches slowly fading and warping, while the background itself is depicted with tangible, real items, such as mountains and water, Dali plays upon the idea of time persistence within an individual’s life.
