    The real Patton speech

    My brother in law sent this to me, and with the recent war movie thread, I thought I would post it. It's from an historian who pieced together as much as he could from eye witness accounts and a Third Army history. It's a bit more colorful than the movie version, but I'll be damned if the guy doesn't have me ready to fight some Germans!

    The opening with that speech was pretty great.

    By far - my favorite part of that movie was on the march to relieve Bastogne.

    "Got the weather report, General. More snow"

    "There goes our air over. Sir, we may have to wait for better weather"

    "There are brave men dying up there. I'm not going to wait. Not for an hour not for a second. We're going to keep fighting. IS THAT CLEAR!?!? We're going to attack all night, we're attack tomorrow morning! If we are not VICTORIOUS.... let no one come back alive"

    Little on the extreme side - but it got me fired up on my sofa.
