When the 1st Div landed at N.Africa. Commander was Terry Allen, assist commander was Gen Ted Roosevelt Jr. Roosevelt carried one of the new carbines and used it to shoot several French irregulars and God knows what else. He was the real deal. Out front in his jeep "Rough Rider". He and Allen were both relieved before the US moved on to Sicily.

According to General Omar Bradley, in both of his autobiographies A Soldier's Story (1951) and A General's Life, he claimed that relieving the two generals was one of his most unpleasant duties of the war. Bradley felt that Allen and Roosevelt were guilty of "loving their division too much" and that their relationship with their soldiers was having a generally bad effect on the discipline of both the commanders and the men of the division.

Good read about Ted Roosevelt, Jr.:

In N Africa, the US and UK were getting their butts kicked all over. It was highly trained German tank and motorized infantry, a lot of Russian veterans against a lot of N.G. generals. Eisenhower didn't know if he was afoot or horseback and constantly took the side of the Brits against the US. It was musical chairs from Colonels on up. Allen and Roosevelt were some of the regular army leaders that knew what they were doing. There was a lot of scapegoating and undeserved blame going on. Allen was sent back home to a cush job and Roosevelt was on the way to a M.O.H. at Normandy and death from a heart attack a couple of months later.

This is all covered in Rick Atkinson's "An Army At Dawn" Believe me, it was an eye opener what happened in Africa and Sicily and then Italy. A huge amount of blood and treasure was used up.

Good read about Ted Roosevelt, Jr.:

Ted was 100% the opposite of the East Coast upper crust elitists that function as the deep state and real enemies of the USA.

Had Ted not died, many think him a shoe in for President. Some one to be proud of just like his father. We seem short on those fellows today.
