Click to EnlargeRELIEVED of COMMAND, by Benjamin S. Persons. Being fired happens all the time and is hardly newsworthy ....Yet, when it happens to a senior military or naval officer, it is news.

Chance played a great part in their undoing....These combat-command general officers were relieved while commanding brigades, combat commands, division, or corps. Here are the reasons and interesting details of these major command decisions.

Includes commanders of the 1st Infantry Division, 3rd Armored Division, 7th Infantry Division, 27th Infantry Division, 32nd Infantry Division, 90th Infantry Division, 106th Infantry Division, II Corps, VI Corps and others.
