I didn't have issue with it myself. the film wasn't a war film. It was an adventure film, and the film had years of Cap's life to cover in around 2 hours. They were never going to highlight every pin point of the fight against Hydra, and I actually thought the movie was paced well (especially considering the type of film it was trying to be). The montage was to say "This is what Cap was doing all these years" as opposed to saying "here is the genius plan in defeating Hydra."
