"Part of Eisenhower's genius was applying management techniques to invading Europe."

Yet it had to remove Patton because his habit of yelling at people. Just, he was one of his most skilled generals.

Maybe Clark yelled less to subordinates, but he was an arrogant too - he lost the opportunity to cut the German withdrawal because he wanted to enter Rome first, and be crowned "Caesar" there.... just his glory dreams were cut short because of D-Day two days after...

Eisenhower also made big mistakes once in France - as attacking on a too broad front - which probably prolonged the war, albeit a lot was also due to British and US generals unable to look beyond their petty career...
