General Patton: War Diary Recovery Sends Shockwaves Across America
From The Last English Prince:
The recovery of a private war diary of General George S. Patton is sending shock waves throughout both the veteran and civilian communities. Written in the months preceding the invasion of Normandy, the words penned by the man who commanded the U.S. Seventh Army in the Mediterranean and European theaters of operation in World War II remain inexplicable and difficult to comprehend.
General Patton takes off the uniform which served him well and delves into the domestic front and the effects of the war on the average citizen. He worries about the inflammatory political discourse against the Nazi ideology, including what he calls “proposals from various quarters” for blanket discrimination against the Germans.
He ponders that the ramifications of such rhetoric “could be very harmful – and lasting”. He considers that such discussions against the Nazi threat do not make us safer, rather compound a greater danger to the citizens of the United States.GO READ THE REST.
