This should really be two articles at least, or maybe merged into NATO. Don't have time. DJ Clayworth 18:27, 19 Sep 2003 (UTC)

Wasnt there a commander during world war 1 Foch maybe i believe he was French Neil McKay

Ferdinand Foch was indeed given overall command of the British, French and American forces on the Western Front on 3 April 1918 by this order. At least some historians term his post "Supreme Allied Commander", but I am not sure that this term was used at the time. I'll do some more digging and see if I can come up with sutible words for the article. Andreww 01:33, 13 November 2005 (UTC)[reply]

Mediterranean Theater of Operations[edit]

Here is a source confirming that the position was C-in-C in the MOT not supreme commander. --Philip Baird Shearer 15:37, 6 May 2006 (UTC)[reply]


The way the list is currently organized is crazy. Alphabetized by FIRST name?? Obviously, if alphabetized, it should be by last name. However, I think the list would be more informative if it were organized by date served. --Garrettcobb 06:50, 21 July 2006 (UTC)[reply]

I removed the list. It only included people who have been Supreme Allied Commander Europe and the list in that article is more comprhensive (and in a sensible order). In general it is easer to maintain one list and this should be at the most specific relevent article. The way information is split between this article and the pages it links to is a bit of a mess. Some reorganisation is needed I think. Andreww 20:16, 23 July 2006 (UTC)[reply]

What legal reasons?[edit]

It mentions that for legal reasons SACEUR will retain the title "Supreme Allied Commander Europe"...

But, what -are- those reasons?
