A doubtful quote. Unattributed and I can't find any part of it anywhere.

Monty says on the eve of D-Day, employing a British euphemism for killing frenzy. “Do not worry if you do not survive the a**ault, as we have plenty of backup troops who will just go in over you,” THE GUNS AT LAST LIGHT By Rick Atkinson

Thank you for your defense of your quote but you're incorrect and provide an excellent demonstration of how the internet fosters ignorance and creates misinformation. Original quotes from the NY Times review of "The Guns at Last Light" by Rick Atkinson.

"The overheated prose contrasts with the deliberate understatement of the men fighting and dying. “We shall have to send the soldiers in to this party seeing red,” Monty says on the eve of D-Day, employing a British euphemism for killing frenzy."

“Do not worry if you do not survive the a**ault, as we have plenty of backup troops who will just go in over you,” Royal Navy commandos were told, as if, having failed to survive the a**ault, they might be worrying about anything at all."

From the original source. "A British Army officer aboard the Empire Broadsword told Royal Naval Commandos: “Do not worry if you do not survive the a**ault, as we have plenty of backup troops who will just go in over you.”"

is there going to be a pop quiz next week?

Ah, thanks for trying. Somehow, it seems fitting that it's being attributed to Monty. I hope it was a tongue in cheek attempt at humor.
