As a military history buff one thing that really upsets me are all the nationalistic/jingoistic arguments that do sometimes have a tendency to involve insulting and blatant disrespect. It always feels better when I here folks complementing each other This being said who were some of the allied military personnel you admired or looked up to a lot?

I generally have respect for any service person who puts themselves in harms way for the benefit of their nation.

Having said that, I have great admiration for the Gurkha's

And the French Foreign Legion - perhaps one of the few military organizations treated better by the enemy than their own officers.
