  1. Yeah, This is great. I don’t know how much digging you did to find this but this is fantastic. My blog is about SpiritualThemes and when I write another blog about Reincarnation & Karma I’m going refernce this material(with reference to You of course).
    At my blog:
    http://informationforager.wordpress.com
    anyone interested can hit the Reincarnation or Karma Catagories.
    Any other like info of these issues or Patton then keep on, I signed on for more.

  2. An egomaniac.

    The first six categories above all faced danger in the thick of battle. Patton was more like a Napoleonic marshall: safely in the rear out of harm’s way.

    • That’s an excellent point, Lan. Even his death would demonstrate this since Patton died in an automobile accident rather than on the front lines leading a heroic charge against the enemy…

    • Sorry, but no. Patton was in action during World War One, with the then new tank machines, at the Battle of Saint-Mihiel and in the Meuse-Argonne Offensive of 1918. That was hellish indeed. While Patton was recuperating from his wounds from that battle, hostilities ended with the armistice of November 11, 1918 (which happened to be Patton’s 33rd birthday).

    • he insisted on eating the same food as his men and was known for standing up in his jeep to draw fire, not a sit in the back kind of guy really.

    • From Wikipedia, which barely counts as research at all, Patton’s time in WW ONE:

      “While in France, Patton REQUESTED a combat command. Pershing asked him to undertake the establishment of a Light Tank Training School for U.S. troops, to which he agreed….

      Patton’s Light Tank Brigade was part of Colonel Samuel Rockenbach’s Tank Corps, which was in turn part of the American Expeditionary Force. (Patton was not in charge of the Tank Corps as has often been misreported.) The 304th Tank Brigade fought as part of the First United States Army.

      Patton commanded American-crewed French Renault tanks at the Battle of Saint-Mihiel and in the Meuse-Argonne Offensive. On September 26, 1918, Patton was wounded in the left leg while leading six men and a tank in an attack on German machine guns near the town of Cheppy during the Meuse-Argonne Offensive.[6] The only survivors were the tank crew, Patton, and his orderly Private First Class Joe Angelo, who saved Patton and was awarded the Distinguished Service Cross.[18]” [my capitalization]

      Patton led an assault on a machine gun nest on foot. Yes, this sounds like a coward to me.

  3. Pattons mind and abilities at military startagy and boosting soldier morale was worth more than his blood thirsty heart being on the front lines. That’s why they still let him give speeches to the boys before Normandy even though he was being repremanded for bitch slapping a soldier.
    Also, WWII wasn’t his first taste of war, when a soldier ushually finds himself on the “front lines”. You do not become so decorated by just pointing your fingers in certain directions.
    If Eisenhower would have told him “we’re not stoppin’ ’till Moscow” I doubt Patton would of taken a day off for leisure and of been in that car in the first place. Then maybe he would have died “leading a heroic charge against the enemy”

  4. I wonder if the statistical probability of dying in a car crash in Europe circa 1945 was as high as it is today… (It very likely wasn’t, considering wartime travel restrictions, limited accessibility to automobiles and of course the dangers posed by the war itself.)
    But say for the sake of argument that car accidents were a more likely cause of death (even in wartime) than getting shot out on patrol, I suppose it would then be possible to posit the statistical equivalent for each era of reincarnation. Therefore, during Patton’s presumed incarnation as a Legionnaire in Caesar’s army, he would most likely meet his end through Malaria… (Reference:http://www.innominatesociety.com/Articles/Death%20and%20Disease%20in%20Ancient%20Rome.htm)

    Interesting passage from the above-cited reference about Life and Death in the Roman Empire- “According to the Romans’ sensibility, anonymity in death was the worst fate, for it was remembrance of the deceased (memoria), which secured immortality”.
    If “memoria” in modern times translates to the volume of history channel documentaries made about a given figure… Than Patton is surely on the level of a demi-god… But then again, that would make Hitler the god of all gods!!! Well I guess the only choice left is to find a better way to transmit cultural memory OR we could just make more History Channel documentaries about Patton so he can kick Hitler’s ass eternally!!!

  5. 1 Patton was very much a hands on general. leading by example. “old blood and guts”. was a graduate of West Point, like Robert E. Lee and U.S. Grant, with a long lineage of relatives who participated in the American Revolution and the Civil War, and after a distinguished career fighting during WWI, garnering a number of meddles and citations, including the Purple Heart, both from the U.S. and other countries, he eventually ended up being put into a position to lead a huge force, in this case the seventh army and later third army, in WWII, which he believed was his destiny. At one point, he was also awarded the British Honorary Knight Commander of the Order of the British Crown (OBE… in essence, knighted by the British).
    2. Patton did indeed die in an auto accident. However, this event happened months after the end of the war in Europe, after he led the Third Army into Berlin, ahead of British general Montgomery, to defeat Hitler first. After the war, he very much believed in a program to reconstruct Germany, and not chastise the German people just because they had poor leaders, and he stayed in Germany to spearhead the reconstruction effort. One day during this effort, he decided to take a short hunting break, with his chief of staff, for a few hours, and ended up in a head-on accident with a huge truck, which turned in front of his staff car at a narrow congested intersection, mostly congested from debris from recent bombings and mortar fire. Being in the back seat in the accident, he was thrown forward into a security barrier, separating the front seat from the back, injuring his spine and probably breaking his neck, paralyzing him from the neck down, and giving him considerable head injuries. He died of a pulmonary embolism a couple of weeks later.

    • Thank You for educating the critics who just want to insult a brave General. Little knowledge is indeed more dangerous than no knowledge.

    I will right away grab your rss feed as I can not in finding your e-mail subscription link or e-newsletter service. Do you have any? Please let me recognize so that I could subscribe. Thanks.

  8. The list would suggest that Patton was stuck in a rut for centuries; hope he’s moved on from the degraded mind of a soldier.
