George Patton, in his own words

Safe for work words, no doubt because the Army made him watch his mouth.

It's very interesting to hear where the audience applauds.  I wonder how different audiences today would respond.

Actually, I don't.

Wonder if the towns the 3rd Army and 8th Air Force "worked on" would say that 'violence never solves' anything?

I think we've lost something vital in the decades since Patton; that recognition that violence is the ultimate answer. One that has to be carefully restrained and suddenly used; but the appropriate response for those will not listen to any other answer.

It sounded to me like the narrator was Ronald Regan.

My father-in-law was with Patton since just before Bastogne until they took Berlin. Had a lot of interesting stories about that time.
