Bennet lying on a bed. Then Patton angrily swore at the soldier, calling him a coward. He hit the soldier and told him he had to return to the front lines. He even reached for his pistol. Patton was still yelling when he left the hospital tent. When Patton and his army entered Messina 16 August , General Eisenhower wrote him, saying he had received word of the slapping incidents.
He said there was no excuse for brutality of the sick and injured. He ordered Patton to publicly apologize to their divisions and to the two men personally. On 30 August, he was giving his public apology for the third and last time to the 3rd Division:  Patton was giving his short speech when his troops sensed he was about to apologize. They started chanting "No general, no, no; General, no, no.
The incidents were considered handled by Eisenhower and Army Chief of Staff George Marshall  and news reporters were told not to file any stories on the incidents. In November , however, one American columnist, Drew Pearson, filed the story anyway,  accusing the Army of a cover-up. The American people, however, still mostly were behind Patton.
The Germans were amused at the story and at the Americans: they saw nothing wrong with a general slapping a soldier. It was an army that did not exist and was only intended to fool the Germans. For the next six months, Patton was on his good behavior. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Patton giving a speech to the 3rd Army.

Hi Gav! Enjoying your site, keep up the good work! Anyway, Patton the man was, as with all men, more complex than his legend would have it. Thanks again for your work! August 8, , am Reply. I have battled for fresh mammoth, I have warred for pastures new, I have listed to the whispers When the race trek instinct grew.
I have known the call to battle In each changeless changing shape From the high souled voice of conscience To the beastly lust for rape. I have sinned and I have suffered, Played the hero and the knave; Fought for belly, shame, or country, And for each have found a grave.
I cannot name my battles For the visions are not clear, Yet, I see the twisted faces And I feel the rending spear. Perhaps I stabbed our Savior In His sacred helpless side. In the dimness of the shadows Where we hairy heathens warred, I can taste in thought the lifeblood; We used teeth before the sword. While in later clearer vision I can sense the coppery sweat, Feel the pikes grow wet and slippery When our Phalanx, Cyrus met. See the goal grow monthly longer, Reaching for the walls of Tyre. Hear the crash of tons of granite, Smell the quenchless eastern fire. Still more clearly as a Roman, Can I see the Legion close, As our third rank moved in forward And the short sword found our foes.
Once again I feel the anguish Of that blistering treeless plain When the Parthian showered death bolts, And our discipline was in vain. I remember all the suffering Of those arrows in my neck. Yet, I stabbed a grinning savage As I died upon my back. In the windless, blinding stillness Of the glittering tropic sea I can see the bubbles rising Where we set the captives free.
Midst the spume of half a tempest I have heard the bulwarks go When the crashing, point blank round shot Sent destruction to our foe. I have fought with gun and cutlass On the red and slippery deck With all Hell aflame within me And a rope around my neck. So as through a glass, and darkly The age long strife I see Where I fought in many guises, Many names, — but always me.
So forever in the future, Shall I battle as of yore, Dying to be born a fighter, But to die again, once more. August 12, , pm Reply. October 30, , pm Reply. November 18, , am Reply. These are great!
