Time Out says

Released in America under the marvellous title of Heaven, Hell and Hoboken, I Was Monty's Double is a low-budget tour de force. Based on real events - an actor (James, who really was used as a double for General Montgomery during the Allied invasion of Europe in World War II) is hired to impersonate Monty and so confuse the Germans by popping up in odd places - the film neatly uses the elevation of a nobody to honoured hero to question the notions of heroism that so many British war movies unquestioningly supported. Highly enjoyable.
