  • Teniente General Sir Stanley George Savige, KBE, CB, DSO, MC, ED (26 de junio de 1890-15 de mayo de 1954) fue un soldado y oficial del ejército australiano que sirvió en la Primera Guerra Mundial y la Segunda Guerra Mundial. En marzo de 1915, después del estallido de la Primera Guerra Mundial, Savige se alistó en la Primera Fuerza Imperial Australiana. Sirvió en las filas durante la Campaña de Gallipoli, y recibió una comisión. Más tarde sirvió en el Frente Occidental, donde fue recomendado dos veces para la Cruz Militar por su valentía. En 1918, se unió a Dunsterforce y sirvió en la Campaña del Cáucaso, durante la cual fue fundamental para proteger a miles de refugiados asirios. Posteriormente, escribió un libro, Stalky's Forlorn Hope, sobre sus experiencias. Después de la guerra, desempeñó un papel clave en el establecimiento de Legacy Australia, el fondo de beneficios para viudas y huérfanos de la guerra. Durante los primeros años de la Segunda Guerra Mundial, Savige comandó la XVII Brigada de Infantería en la Campaña del Norte de África , la Batalla de Grecia y la Campaña Siria-Líbano. Sus críticas abiertas a los soldados profesionales le hicieron ganar su rencor. Regresó a Australia a principios de 1942, y más tarde comandó la 3ª División en la campaña de Salamaua-Lae. En última instancia, alcanzó el rango de teniente general en el ejército australiano, al mando del II Cuerpo en la Campaña de Bougainville. En la vida posterior, Savige fue director de Olympic Tire & Rubber Ltd. Entre 1946 a 1951, y presidente de Moran Cato Ltd de 1950 a 1951. También fue presidente de la Central War Gratuity Board de 1946 a 1951 y comisionado del State Savings Bank of Victoria. (es)

In March 1915, after the outbreak of the First World War, Savige enlisted in the First Australian Imperial Force. He served in the ranks during the Gallipoli Campaign, and received a commission.

He subsequently wrote a book, Stalky's Forlorn Hope, about his experiences. After the war he played a key role in the establishment of Legacy Australia, the war widows and orphans benefit fund. During the early years of the Second World War, Savige commanded the 17th Infantry Brigade in the North African Campaign, the Battle of Greece and Syria–Lebanon Campaign. His outspoken criticism of professional soldiers earned him their rancour. He returned to Australia in early 1942, and later commanded the 3rd Division in the Salamaua–Lae campaign. He ultimately rose to the rank of lieutenant general in the Australian Army, commanding the II Corps in the Bougainville Campaign. In later life, Savige was a director of Olympic Tyre & Rubber Ltd from 1946 to 1951 and chairman of Moran & Cato Ltd from 1950 to 1951. He was also chairman of the Central War Gratuity Board from 1946 to 1951, and a commissioner of the State Savings Bank of Victoria. (en)

  • He was a skilful manager of men, using an easy friendly manner to decrease the distance that separated him from his subordinates. He was a sage leader in battle whose approach to all problems was practical and objective. He could write clearly and interestingly and enjoyed writing, whether it was of orders and doctrine for future operations or accounts of past battles; he had a sense of history and the doings of his commands were usually more fully recorded than those of companion formations. (en)
  • "I know," Blamey replied to a senior staff officer who was urging him to drop Savige, "they say I stick with him because he's my friend. Tell me when he has let me down in this war!" The anti-Savige advocate mentioned a tale which was going about: it was not Savige but a subordinate commander who was doing the real job. "Somebody's got to do the job," Blamey answered. "If a commander can pick a good man, give him a job to do and stand behind him, that is all that matters. If he doesn't stand behind him, he's a bad commander. If anybody can prove to me that Savige has ever let me down, then Savige won't be there." (en)
  • Savige did not pretend to be a military genius but only a commander who knew his way around the battlefield because he had learned soldiering the hard way. (en)
