Great video! If only we did have people like him (the balls to get the job done, no matter who he pissed off) around today, it's be a whole different story.

After reading the Koran and observing North Africans, he wrote to his wife, "Just finished reading the Koran—a good book and interesting." Patton had a keen eye for native customs and methods, wrote knowingly of local architecture, even rated the progress of word-of-mouth rumor in Arab country at 40–60 miles a day. In spite of his regard for the Koran, he concluded, "To me it seems certain that the fatalistic teachings of Mohammad and the utter degradation of women is the outstanding cause for the arrested development of the Arab. . . . Here, I think, is a text for some eloquent sermon on the virtues of Christianity" (both Patton and Halsey were Episcopalians).[44][45]


He was an outspoken no bullshit kinda guy and was hillarous with what he said at times hahah

I personally like eishenhower the most, just seemed like a very down to earth and smart man.

The trouble with doing something right the first time is that nobody appreciates how difficult it was.

Just made my day.

It has a throttle body spacer for high end HP, and an RV cam for low end toque.

I appreciate what Patton brought to the table from a tactical/ toughness standpoint, but Omar Bradley was probably the best people person of that era.

I dont know much about bradley, i always thought eisenhower was the most liked. Helped him become POTUS, patton was def a hot head! Great to have in combat though, the germans said he was the best general we had hehe

But that's NOT George S Patton. It's the actor, George C Scott from the awesome film of 1970.

And those words aren't even those of George C Scott. They've been dubbed in.

Great words, but they aren't even revisionist history, just another internet fantasy.

Thank you WTW, we didn't know it had been dubbed, the words that didn't match the mouth wasn't a giveaway. The sentiment is right and it's something Patton would say

You're serious about this, aren't you?
