Patton's Speech to the Third Army and the Ghost Army
Patton Speech. My Dad a college history professor of 49 years would applaud you for posting speech, we’re he still here. He was a Jeffersonian, and a staunch supporter of the constitution. Thank you for reminded us of important spots in history. great job.
When the FBI says the Biden whistleblower will be killed, is that warning or a threat? Asking for a friend.
I fear Patton has rolled in his grave of recent times. We don’t have a Patton anymore. I do thank God we did have George when we did.
I served my country and “get” George Patton’s
Speech. It’s too bad the upper echelon 4/5 star types are too busy playing the fools instead of
being the fierce fighters as their predecessors.
Thanks for posting this. Patton was definitely badass. The difference between this generation and the greatest generation is like night and day.
Doris Kearns Goodwin's documentary on FDR is good, Dana. I know you don't like FDR, I don't either, in fact my Mother, who lived thru WWII, and my Father who fought in Europe, hated the man. But this documentary is well done, and informative. Thank you for posting Patton's speech. We should never forget the price that was paid for our freedom.
Re: RFK comments on gun control. Yes, no room in constitution for consensus. Folks that can read need to read or re-read the constitution. Thanks for highlighting his conflicting statements
I absolutely loved that speech! Considering all the carnage, but resilience, of the men who exited those boats to a barrage of German gunfire at Normandy on D-Day, this was the only speech they should have heard; from the one and only George S. Patton! What a man!
"Americans like to fight" I wonder how many of today's "girly men" would agree with him.
Thank you for sharing this.
You had mentioned that there are some books you would recommend. I have searched and do not see them listed. Which books do you recommend for D day?
I knew a man that served in the 3rd Army. Also knew a man who survived the Battan Death March. True heroes.
