you didn't expect all mine to be easy now, did ya?
alright a hint: he was executed by firing squad in Belgrade, Yugoslavia, for his role as the commander of the German Air Force units involved in the Bombing of Belgrade in 1941.
yup, good job. All yours.
Nothing I did other than Googling. Your hint gave it away.
If you've been following threads closely, it should make identifying this general officer easier.
Hint if you please
Ya know, Ike, I have forgotten who he is.
Go ahead an post one while I try to remember.
Now that you are back please relieve us of our misery. I know I've seen his photo in my searches before for this quiz, so its going to bug me until you give us hints or an answer. Thanks!
Ok. Here is one with an infamous Brother-in-law
I think he was a corps commander in Europe. I'll get back to looking.
Hermann Otto Fegelein
Correct. Married Eva Braun's sister thus making him Hitler's brother-in-law. Your turn.
Who is this bareheaded general talking with George Patton?
Gen. Lucius Clay
Nope, it is earlier than what you are thinking.
Is that a single star on Patton's Helmet? Must be way back. LOL. Lucius Clay.....I was thinking of Lucian Truscott.
How about Lloyd Fredendall?
Not Fredendall. I think Patton is wearing the stars of a MajGen, he should have been a MG at the time this picture was made. The picture was made in the CONUS, while Patton was in command of the 2nd Armored Division.
The general in question had a major influence on US armored doctrine and armor production.
The unknown general was killed in action.
Gen. Lesley James McNair
You are correct Bod.
Throw us another out there to ruminate over.
