"Where I come from, generals don't hide in their offices like cowards. They fight alongside their soldiers. They die with them on the battlefied."

By popular demand (ie @byzantinefox), and courtesy of “Bloody Red Tabs: General Officer Casualtues of the Great War 1914-1918,” here’s a list of the 78 or so British and Commonwealth generals who died for King and Country in the Great War. This not meant to attack Wonder Woman (2017), which is an excellent film. This, is for the record.
