Fail in his duty…

“On learning of the mutiny (Salerno, 1943), Field‐Marshal Montgomery said that although the Mutineers’ actions were quite inexcusable and could not be condoned in any way, ‘where soldiers get into trouble of this nature, it is nearly always the fault of some officer who has failed in his duty.’”
