Cool Patton's .357

Watched "Patton" again this morning, and got to looking him up on the computer again.

Nothing new here - just a picture;




Because it's just THAT damn cool...

Patton is one of the people from history that would have made a lifetime to meet and talk too

My great uncle was a CSM under Patton during WWII. He was not much different, if the movie is anywhere near accurate.

That is why the CIA killed him, he would have been president if he lived.

Nope. I don't think he'd of taken the job, if they'd given it to him by acclamation. The west was still TRYING to play kissy-face with the USSR (which they would do, until the Berlin blockade and the development of Russian hydrogen bomb, a few years later); Patton was a definite impediment to THAT, and as he was NOT as strong a proponent of "de-Nazification" as TPTB liked, he had to be "removed."

And so he was.
