“The Allies were far too often in conflict on the conduct of the war.  The Americans were suspicious of the British plan to mount an offensive in the Mediterranean; they wished to divert forces to the Indian Ocean to circumvent the Japs.  Stalin pressed for an all-out assault in France to ease the pressure in the East.  IN the talks at Cairo Chiang Kai-shek demanded vast reinforcements in South-East Asia.  In Alanbrooke’s opinion Chiang had no contribution to make toward the defeat of Germany.  He failed to understand why the  Americans attached so much importance to Chiang.  Alanbrooke held no high opinion of Eisenhower’s strategical ability, although he appreciated his charm and capacity for co-ordinating the Allied officers under his command.”
