Operation Market Garden

I got from my dad (WWII-Ranger, RIP) that as leaders go, Paton was feared while Eisenhower was respected. Paton offered a free weekend pass to anyone who took out an enemy tank, dad & his buddy tried their hardest but were under gunned at key moments. "Remember MALMEDY "
 
The US used Patton’s movements to distract the Krauts from the real LZ....Normandy. When the enemy respects a Commander that much...he’s top notch. The Germans never could understand why the U.S government handcuffed their own best General. Even Rommel respected him.
