Think being an OC is complicated. Try coordinating 5,000 hsips, 11,000 planes and 156,000 people - many of whom don't speak the same language. Add to this, your opponent is trying to steal your game plan and you have to make a good # of "fakes" to make it all work. that's why I nominate Ike for greatest coordinator of all time.

Hats off to the greatest generation for their service, in general, and for D Day in particular.

    He was also humble, at least for his place in life, and was prepared to take the total blame if it failed. A true commander
