Letter: Patton timing

December 18, 2012


To the editor:

I liked the article by Chief Justice Nuss on the justice selection system (Journal-World, 12-16), but his information on Gen. Patton is not correct in saying  that “his troops stormed Normandy beaches.” The troops liked the speech referred to, but the Third Army did not get to Normandy until later. Instead, Patton’s Army in England played a different role in making the Germans believe the invasion would come elsewhere.

Amazing how the truth often is forgotten in an effort to make a good story.

Good job with the clarification.
