"Most Famous British general" I heavily disagree with. General Pakenham is way more famous to non-Canadians. I have many other grievances with this quiz but realizing you are Canadian I will keep the others to myself as I think they'd fall upon deaf ears in the name of patriotism for our respective countries.

Fair enough. I don't claim to be an expert, but I am not familiar with Pakenham - perhaps it's a national thing, about which parts we learn about.
