What would you gentlemen say to the suggestion that the 'halt order' Gen. Bradley gave to Gen. Patton at 1130 hours on the morning of August 13th, ordering Patton to stop Haislip's U.S. XV Corps south of Argentan actually came from General Montgomery. There is some good evidence to support this. Dr. Forrest Pogue's 1947 interview with Montgomery staffer Brigadier E.T. Williams, See Carlo D'Este, "Decision in Normandy," p. 451,452, also see Richard Rohmer's, "Patton's Gap," p. 226, 227. Confirmation comes from Freddie De Guingand's "Operation Victory," p. 407, and the War Diary of Air vice Marshal Stephen C. Stafford, from D'Este, "Decision in Normandy," p. 440, 441. And finally the one book which seems to have been grossly overlooked in all this is F.W. Winterbotham's, "The ULTRA Secret," pages 148-158 inclusive are critical to understanding what actually happened.
