Summary
In 2011, in a poll conducted by the National Army Museum, Bill Slim was nominated, along with the Duke of Wellington, as Britain's greatest general. Had he been alive, Slim would have been surprised, for he was the most modest of men -- a rare quality among generals. Of all the plaudits heaped on him during his life, the one he valued most was the epithet by which he was affectionately known to the troops: 'Uncle Bill'
