  • George Patton was at a welcome club in Knutsford, England, United Kingdom as the guest of honor.

A reporter carelessly missed writing down the Soviet Union, thus when the story was published several days later, it appeared as if Patton was disrespecting the Soviet Union. ww2dbase [Main Article | CPC]
