As General Patton started to actually become acquainted with the defeated Germans and America‘s Soviet allies, Patton finally realized what he was in the midst of, and his opinions about the war, and both our enemies and allies changed drastically.
What Patton realized was recorded in his diary, and in letters to everyone from his family and friends, to other military and government personnel. It’s a good thing that these writings were preserved, so that we could see how even America’s “most fightingest General” knew that something was wrong with the outcome of WWII. In those writings it is clear that Patton realized that these new “allies” of ours were more of a danger than the Germans ever were. I only wish that Patton were still alive today to see with the hindsight that is available to us now.
