He put himself first over winning the battle because he did not like the commander.

POLL DESCRIPTION

Personal logo ochoin Supporting Member of TMP says:

Minden: one of the earliest British battlefield triumphs was partly marred by the failure of Lord Sackville to obey orders and charge the beaten French with the cavalry. Was he a coward, or just unable to understand the orders given him? And if the latter, why wasn't he shot, like Byng?

Poll set up by Personal logo Editor in Chief Bill The Editor of TMP Fezian, based on this pre-poll discussion.
