GENERAL WWARENESS:

Did you know besides speaking French, General Patton also spoke German. Interrogating an SS-
Major General Anton Dunckern, he used a German speaking American Officer as his interpreter.
Patton didn't want his enemy the honor of speaking to him directly. General Dunckern was more concerned about being turned over to the French, he should have been grateful it wasn't turned over to the Russians.

SOME WHO GOT AWAY:

Anton Dunckern escaped punishment, after the war he became a lawyer in Munich, Germany. He died in 1985 at age 80...

"There are three ways that men get what they want.
By planning, by working, and by praying"

-George S. Patton-
