And I love this strict general for his uniforms and how want to discipline the US army.
Because one does not die when he is killed. One dies when he is forgotten. That's why we will live forever as a legend

General Patton :honoring:


Old Blood and Guts! Too bad he didn't get to enjoy the peace he helped build.

From the Triva section :
Patton led his tanks into the famous Battle of the Bulge. They were victorious with the help of their fellow American soldiers, which included a particular band of paratroopers from Easy Company, 101st Airborne Division...

Really? I was little disappointed about that one. Off the top of my head I can quickly think of 3-4 better pieces of trivia. And it is 4:30am in the morning!

Ahhh the vaunted Georgie Patton... Too bad the tank named after him in-game doesn't live up to expectations :)) Still, a great general and probably the Allies' best offensive general.

Just as I was thinking we Don't have it to bad on the spcecials front, I saw this on the NA server, for the 2nd battle el al Alamein. Don't see the NA ppl complaining. That's because they have no reason to!

Tankers!
The Second Battle of Alamein occured from October 21 to November 11, 1942, following the first Battle of El Alamein that July. The Axis powers had moved into Egypt once more in an attempt to control the Suez Canal. The 20-day battle ended in a decisive victory for the Allies, securing the Canal, and setting the course for the rest of the war. Per Winston Churchill, "It may almost be said, 'Before Alamein we never had a victory. After Alamein we never had a defeat.'"

For such a lengthy decisive battle, we have a similarly-sized set of discounts on tanks that fought in the Second Battle, experience boosts, and more for you to take advantage of this weekend.

LOL! They watched too much TV to quote such thing...  
They should watch History Channel and/or read/refer to books that present real and truth facts...
Or maybe ask the good friend... Mr. Google.

I just saw a show about conspiracy theories on how Patton died.

They said how in the world could Patton die in a low speed crash like 15-30mph and before 24 hours he is pronounced dead,he was improving good.
Probbaly assasinated?  :hiding:

History channel is TV and often sensationalises things. Remember Aliens! guy.
Books from recognised experts are generally your best bet.

Hope the next one is for something British. Don't think they've done one for any of the British lines yet.

Thanks I do have the series on DVD in the lounge. And you do realise that most of the 101st Division is there with them? The battered bastards of Bastogne!

In one aspect it does. It makes the player speak a similar amount of vulgarities as old man Patton himself, whenever playing the Patton.

He had a broken neck from getting his head rammed into a glass divider. From there, spinal fluid flow is messed, then edema, then CHF.
