Edmund Allenby

1861- 1936

British General

General Edmund Henry Hynman Allenby was educated at Sandhurst, Britain's stellar military academy. He served in the Boer War as a cavalry officer and entered World War I as a division commander and then as commander of the Third Army from 1915-1917. Allenby, however, is most famous for leading British forces in the Middle East. In December 1917, he captured Jerusalem and then went on to defeat the Ottomans at the Battle of Megiddo.
