Tedder, Sir Arthur
Tedder's contribution to allied success, especially in Normandy, 1944, involved ‘interdiction’: preventing enemy supplies and reinforcements from reaching the battlefield by attacking road and rail transport, direct and prompt tactical support for ground troops, using fighter-bombers as mobile artillery, and his occasional diversion of British and American heavy bombers to support big offensives. He showed tactful impartiality and lessened the damage done by the bumptious vanity of Generals Montgomery and Patton. He became marshal of the RAF and was made viscount in 1946.
