Other than the U.S., most World War 2 generals were really short

Ever notice how short the generals were in World War 2? Granted, the U.S. had tall generals but all the others were really short. Based on photos, Field Marshal Bernard Montgomery was the same size as Churchill and Churchill was only 5 feet 6 inches.  Based on photos of them standing together, the fearless Soviet general Georgy Zhukov was shorter than Montgomery.  Likewise, the Germans had Erwin Rommel, who was only 5’6” according to his son Manfred, and Field Marshal Walter Model who was noticeably shorter in photos than the Fuehrer who was only 5’8’’.  Wonder why they were all so short?
