In the present paper the evidence for Field Marshal Montgomery having Asperger«SQ»s syndrome is examined. Biographies of Montgomery were examined to search for evidence that he met criteria for Asperger«SQ»s syndrome - Gillberg (1991) and Asperger«SQ»s disorder (APA.1994) and Anankastic personality disorder (WHO,1992). He demonstrates a qualitative impairment in social interaction and restricted repetitive and stereotyped patterns of behaviour, interests and activities. It can be concluded that he met criteria for Asperger«SQ»s disorder DSM-IV (APA.1994).
