Divisional General - Description

Description

The rank is mostly used in countries where it is used as a modern alternative to a previous older rank of Major-General.

The rank is almost always above a rank corresponding to command of a brigade, and normally below a rank corresponding to command of a corps.

In Poland the symbols of this rank are the general's wavy line and two stars, featured both on the rogatywka, sleeves of the uniform and above the breast pocket of a field uniform.

Famous quotes containing the word description:

    The next Augustan age will dawn on the other side of the Atlantic. There will, perhaps, be a Thucydides at Boston, a Xenophon at New York, and, in time, a Virgil at Mexico, and a Newton at Peru. At last, some curious traveller from Lima will visit England and give a description of the ruins of St Paul’s, like the editions of Balbec and Palmyra.
    Horace Walpole (1717–1797)

    Do not require a description of the countries towards which you sail. The description does not describe them to you, and to- morrow you arrive there, and know them by inhabiting them.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    Whose are the truly labored sentences? From the weak and flimsy periods of the politician and literary man, we are glad to turn even to the description of work, the simple record of the month’s labor in the farmer’s almanac, to restore our tone and spirits.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
