The supreme quality is missing in a few of our senior officers

The supreme quality for leadership is unquestionably integrity. Without it, no real success is possible.

Some might say it was missing in him.
When you reach the peaks he did and you ask,
was his integrity to his men or,
was his integrity to his purpose and,
when those conflict,
how did one measure that integrity?
Was it by his purpose or his personal integrity to the men he led?

It's a question that cannot be answered at his level of command. He knowingly CHOPPEd his men to subordinate commands he had no confidence in and did so because he believed he must in order to maintain the SHAPE of the war effort against Germany. Nimitz did the same when he sent ships and men to work for poor commanders.
