    General George Patton is my favorite general from the Second World War. I think without a doubt he was the best American field general ( but I don't think I would've liked to serve under him, you know that mandatory necktie thing and all ). I would like to post some of his quotes here and let me know what you think. If anyone has a favorite, please share them. His first quote:

    "A good plan, violently executed now, is better than a perfect plan next week."

    Having just watched a gaff on the US "NBC Evening News," I'll add this one: "Only a pimp from a cheap New Orleans whorehouse would carry a pearl-handled pistol."

    I would rather have a German division in front of me than a French one behind me.

    I'm pleasantly surprised you were able to get any historical facts from the History Channel. It seems all they ever have anymore is stuff like Pawn Stars, American Pickers, Swamp People, and Ice Road Truckers. I'm glad you were able to get that bit of info. Nice going!

    When I worked there in northern Bavaria, it was a nice place, with good weather, the Beer was always good, and the ladies were generally friendly. And even if they weren't, the Beer was still good.

    All fine...as long as you don't call them Bavarians German.

    What do you think of them as ? I'm just curious about how people from the different States view (ed) each other. Would you speculate that this may be due at least in part to Germany's relatively recent Birth as a Nation ?

    It's more of the opposite. To us the Bavarians are just south Germans, they consider themselves kinda different. The official designation of their home is " Free State of Bavaria", to them we (the rest of Germany) are "Saupreißn" as they call it (~ damn Prussians).

    I always thought that Patton's prayer for good weather was somewhat of a paradox, praying for the ability to kill more of the enemy. I'm not sure God approved, but here is the prayer:
    Almighty and most merciful Father, we humbly beseech Thee, of Thy great goodness, to restrain these immoderate rains with which we have had to contend. Grant us fair weather for Battle. Graciously hearken to us as soldiers who call upon Thee that, armed with Thy power, we may advance from victory to victory, and crush the oppression and wickedness of our enemies and establish Thy justice among men and nations.
    He then ordered 250,000 copies to be distributed to the troops.

    I had not heard that before FTG, which may be because most all of my tour was based in N.Bavaria. I have spent time in other States, but not enough to get the local flavor. This sounds a bit like the relationship between the Norwegians, and Swedes.
