General George S. Patton

 

 
The Allied forces were fighting Nazi Germany at the end
of the Second World War. And they won the battle. But
what a mistakes they made.
 
One general did not make any mistakes. That general was
George S. Patton. But his contribution to the war was
not appreciated.
 
There was Eisenhower. He was the supreme commander of
the Allied Forces in Europe. Why was he elected to be
one? He was a politician.
 
As he was in England he was fucking his female driver.
Mamie Eisenhower was in America. She did not know.
Nobody told her.
 
But Eisenhower had plans. He was thinking of becoming
president of the USA. That is why he had a lot of
conversations with Churchill.
 
But let's start with Patton. He was in England. He was
making the Germans believe that the invasion would take
place over the Channel.
 
He also got the Third Army. He had to make the soldiers
ready for battle in Europe. That was a difficult task.
Because they were newly recruited.
 
There was D-Day. The Allied forces had invaded
Normandy. But they were stuck on the beaches. They
could not get out and go into France.
 
General Bradley knew. The Allied forces needed to break
out of the beaches. And only one general could do the
job. George S. Patton.
 
Patton was brought to Normandy. And he started the
break out. Almost two months after the invasion. He was
successful.
 
He had the German army surrounded. One thing. There was
an opening near Falaise. The Third Army of Patton was
closing the opening.
 
But Patton was told to wait for the British to move
forward and to close the gap. Patton was waiting for
Montgomery.
 
But Montgomery did not tell his army to move forward.
So the gap stayed open. And the German army could
escape.
 
Patton wanted to close the gap by himself. But Bradley
told him not to move forward. That was a big mistake.
Later the Germans would fight the Allied forces.
 
The second big mistake. Operation Market Garden.
Montgomery came up with a plan for the Market Garden
operation.
 
Eisenhower never should have given permission to
Montgomery to perform the operation. He had seen how
slow Montgomery was.
 
And the operation Market Garden was a very big
operation. It was even bigger than the D-Day landing.
Still. It went ahead and it was a failure.
 
Even worse. The tanks of Patton's Third Army did not
get any fuel no more. They were stuck as they were in a
battle with the Germans.
 
A lot of soldiers were killed. All because the
operation Market Garden got a preference. And all the
fuel was used for that operation.
 
The next big mistake the Allied forces made was with
the Battle of the Bulge. Or the Ardennes Offensive as
it was also known.
 
The intelligence service of Patton's Third Army had
seen that the Germans were coming together along the
border of Luxemburg.
 
Something was going to happen. Patton gave a warning to
Eisenhower. But he did not listen. And then the Battle
of the Bulge started.
 
Patton came in. His Third Army made a ninety degrees
turn and went to Bastogne. Patton saved Eisenhower's
ass.
 
Patton crossed the Rhine. He was first. Montgomery
wanted to cross the Rhine first. He already had made a
plan for a big operation.
 
Patton wanted to go to Berlin. But that was not
allowed. He was ordered to go to the south of Germany.
There was the enemy Eisenhower said.
 
Well. There was no enemy in the south of Germany. Of
course not. Eisenhower did not want Patton to go to
Berlin. He wanted the Russians to take it.
 
After the war George S. Patton was made military
governor of Bavaria. He wanted to go to the Far East
and fight the Japanese there.
 
I don't know exactly why. Did Douglas MacArthur not
want him there? He knew how Patton was. Or was it the
idea of Eisenhower to keep him in Europe?
 
Patton got two orders that he did not like. He was told
to remove Germans from their houses and give those
houses to displaced persons.
 
Patton felt that he would punish the German people by
doing that. And he felt that was not fair. Besides. He
found these displaced persons mongols.
 
The second order. The Allied forces wanted to make it
impossible for the Germans to industrialize again. And
to use factories for doing that.
 
They ordered Patton to destroy all factories. Patton
plainly refused to do that. He felt they could be used
to give housing to displaced persons.
 
He was told to hand over German prisoners of war to the
French. He was against it. This is what he wrote about
it in his diary:
 
"Today we received orders in which we were told to give
the Jews special accommodations. If for Jews,
why not Catholics, Mormons, etc?
 
We are also turning over to the French several hundred
thousand prisoners of war to be used as slave labor in
France.
 
It is amusing to recall that we fought the Revolution
in defense of the rights of man and the Civil War to
abolish slavery and have now gone back on both
principles."
 
Patton did not find the German bad people. He called
them the best people of Europe. Maybe he found them the
best people of the world.
 
But the biggest thing were the Russians. Patton wanted
to fight the Russians. He wanted to beat them back to
Moscow.
 
On May 7, 1945, just before the German capitulation,
Patton had a conference in Austria with US. Secretary
of War Robert Patterson.
 
Patton said to Patterson:
 
"Let's keep our boots polished, bayonets sharpened, and
present a picture of force and strength to the Red
Army. This is the only language they understand and
respect."
 
Patterson replied,
 
"Oh, George, you have been so close to this thing so
long, you have lost sight of the big picture."
 
Patton said:
 
"I understand the situation. Their (the Soviet) supply
system is inadequate to maintain them in a serious
action such as I could put to them.
 
They have chickens in the coop and cattle on the hoof
-- that's their supply system. They could probably
maintain themselves in the type of fighting I could
give them for five days.
 
After that it would make no difference how many
million men they have, and if you wanted Moscow I could
give it to you.
 
They lived on the land coming down. There is
insufficient left for them to maintain themselves going
back.
 
Let's not give them time to build up their supplies. If
we do, then we have had a victory over the Germans and
disarmed them, but we have failed in the liberation of
Europe; we have lost the war!"
 
The good advice of Patton was not followed. The whole
of Eastern Europe was given to the Russians. How many
millions of people were killed there!
 
And the cold war started shortly after the surrender of
the Germans. That has cost the USA a lot of money. Was
that not good for the rich people?
 
Patton had won the Second World war. And not the Allied
forces. But he did not get any appreciation for what he
had done. Is that not normal?
 
Patton knew what to do. On October 22 he wrote a letter
to Maj. Gen. James G. Harbord. In the letter
Patton bitterly condemned the policy of the Allied
forces and he talked bad about Eisenhower.
 
Patton also talked about his own plans. He wrote
 
"It is my present thought that when I finish this job,
which will be around the first of the year, I shall
resign, not retire, because if I retire I will still
have a gag in my mouth".
 
Pity. Patton had a car accident. And a week later he
was dead. Maybe the USA made sure that he would die.
Because Truman did not like him.
 
Patton has made a lot of quotes. Let me give you one of
them:
 
"There's only one proper way for a professional soldier
to die: the last bullet of the last battle of the last
war".
 
Well. He died as the war was over. He almost died as he
had said in his quote.
