George Smith Patton Jr., 1885-1945. American general. In World War II he led the Third Army's sweep across France and into Germany (1944-1945).

Born in San Gabriel, California and educated at the U.S. Military Academy...

In 1942 and 1943, during World War II, he commanded U.S. forces in Morocco, Tunisia and Sicily. Early in 1944 he was given command of the Third Army.

In the summer of 1944 the Third Army broke through the German defenses in the Normandy campaign and advanced rapidly across France; in March 1945 it crossed the Rhine River into Germany and also moved toward Austria. After the war Patton served as military governor of Bavaria, but because of criticism of his lenient policy toward the former enemy and his warning of the growing threat to the world of communism in Russia, and his advice to march all the way to Moscow and his belief that this would prevent further world problems, he was relieved of the post by idiot bureaucrats advice (they had another agenda hidden from the public of course). History proved Patton should have marched with his army and taken over Russia stopping communism dead.

He was named head of the Fifteenth Army late in 1945, shortly before he was fatally injured in a traffic accident (some say otherwise, that it was not an accident). Patton's career is portrayed in the Academy Award winning high class motion picture.Patton.(1970).
