General Sir Kenneth Arthur Noel Anderson, KCB, MC was a British Army officer in both the First and Second World Wars.

    Age 57
    He was promoted full general in July 1949 when he was made a Knight of the Venerable Order of Saint John and retired in June 1952 and lived mainly in the south of France. His last years were filled with tragedy: his only son died in action in Malaya and his daughter also died after a long illness. Anderson died of pneumonia in Gibraltar in 1959.
  • 1944
    Age 52
    On his return to Britain from Tunis he was initially given command of the Second Army during the preparations for the Normandy landings but the criticisms of Alexander and Montgomery (who in March 1943 had written to Alexander saying " it is obvious that Anderson is completely unfit to command any army" and later described him as "a good plain cook") had gained currency and in January 1944 he was replaced by Lieutenant General Miles Dempsey.

    Anderson was the first recipient of the American Legion of Merit in the grade of Chief Commander, for his service as First Army commander in North Africa; he received his award on 18 June 1943.
    His rank of lieutenant-general was made substantive in July 1943 and he was advanced to Knight Commander of the Order of the Bath in August.
    More Details
    In May 1943 he secured his position further when Allied forces won victory and the unconditional surrender of the Axis forces, 125,000 of whom were German.
    Alexander wanted to replace Anderson with Lieutenant General Oliver Leese, commander of XXX Corps of the Eighth Army, and Montgomery felt that Leese was ready for such a promotion, writing on the 17th of March, 1943 to Alexander "your wire re Oliver Leese.
    More Details
    As Allied and Axis forces built up in Tunisia, 18th Army Group HQ was formed in February 1943 under General Sir Harold Alexander to control all Allied forces in Tunisia.
    As further Allied forces arrived at the front they suffered from a lack of co-ordination. Eventually in late January 1943 General Dwight D. Eisenhower, the Supreme Allied Commander in the Mediterranean, persuaded the French to place their newly formed XIX Corps under Anderson's First Army and also gave him responsibility for the overall "employment of American troops", specifically U.S. II Corps, commanded by Major General Lloyd Fredendall.
