IN THE 1970 MOVIE (PATTON) KARL MALDEN PORTRAYED GENERAL ORMAR BRADLEY, AS PATTON'S GEORGE C. SCOTT'S BUDDY. IN REAL LIFE NOTHING OF THE SORT. JEALOUS OF PATTON, THE REAL LIFE BRADLEY WOULD RUN TO EISENHOWER BEHIND PATTON'S BACK AND STYMIE AT GEORGE'S SUCCESS. STYMIE: OBSTRUCTION, BLOCKING, PREVENT OR HINDER PROGRESS. YOU COULD SAY, HIS ASSOCIATE BLOCKED HIM AT EVERY TURN...

OMAR N. BRADLEY 1895 - 1981 GENERAL US ARMY WWII There is evidence that Bradley despised Patton both personally and professionally. In the 1970 film "Patton" Bradley was seen as a good buddy to Patton, in real life Bradley was very jealous of Patton and would run to Eisenhower behind Patton's back. He would obstruct, block, prevent or hinder progress. Did you know that Gen. Omar Bradley was paid big money to act as military consultant on the 1970 film "Patton" even though he didn't like the man, (Patton )he grabbed the money and ran, instead of telling the truth about their real not movie reel military relationship during WWII. Historically he should have been seen as the man he was you could say, he grabbed the money and ran POSTERITY: Did you know that the film "Patton" has been preserved by the Library of Congress as being a historically significant film. General George S. Patton Jr. will always remain the topic of military discussion. After WWII he was relieved of his beloved 3rd Army and moved down the ladder to command the 15th Army, that was a paper army writing the history of the U.S. Army in Europe, he should have been appointed commandant of the War College to teach officers the Art of War. si vis pacem, para bellum Latin for: "If you want peace, prepare for war" Flavius Vegetius Renatus MOVIES OF INTEREST: "PATTON" 1970 Available on DVD LAST DAYS OF PATTON Made for TV movie 1986 available on DVD
