PostSubject: General Discussion   Fri Apr 17, 2009 7:21 am

We have 5 boards regarding general discussion, and yet no one is discussing generals.
Seem odd to anyone else?
Discuss.
I'd like to start by naming Coloniel Sanders and an 'honorary' general. I think his contributions merrit it.

General Motors not doing so well.
Wasn't there a wrestler named General Erection? Did I just imagine that? Embarassed

George Smith Patton, Jr. (also George Smith Patton III) (November 11, 1885 – December 21, 1945) was a distinguished though controversial United States Army officer.

Commissioned in the army in 1909, Patton participated in the unsuccessful attempt to capture Pancho Villa in 1916-17. In World War I, he was the first officer assigned to the new United States Tank Corps[1][2] and saw action in France. After the war he was a strong advocate of armored warfare.

In World War II he made his mark, commanding both corps and armies as a general in North Africa, Sicily, and the European Theater of Operations. Near the end of the Sicilian campaign, Patton jeopardized his career by slapping a soldier recuperating from "battle fatigue" at a hospital; Patton considered him a coward. The well-publicized incident caused General Eisenhower to relieve him of command. Thus, instead of playing a major part in the invasion of Normandy, he was relegated to being a decoy. However, he was later given command of the U.S. Third Army and ably led it in breaking out of the hedgerows of Normandy and across France. When a surprise major German offensive resulted in American units being surrounded in Bastogne, Patton rapidly disengaged his army from fighting in another sector and moved it over 100 miles in 48 hours to relieve the siege.

Patton often got into trouble with his outspokenness and strong opinions. In addition to the slapping incident, towards the end of the war, he voiced his detestation and mistrust of the Soviets and his desire to fight them. He has also been criticized for sending an ill-fated rescue mission for his son-in-law, held in a prison camp deep behind enemy lines.

A particular favorite General of mine. Of note, while not the genesis for the name 'hooker', given to women of ill repute, he is credited for giving it 'lasting' popularity.

Also, the first to (effectively) fly the XX clan tag. Seriously. Read...

Does this make some of us ex-street walkers? Shocked

Generals in the United States wear 4 stars as seen here

While in the UK they have what I think is a coin, a crown, a sword and some big looking stick, and that neat diamond shaped doo dad.

As a General in the Clone Wars, Obi-Wan Kenobi served the Senate and the Republic heroically, on numerous historic battlefronts. Despite his misgivings, he became a seasoned starfighter pilot, learning several tricks from his unorthodox Padawan as the duo blazed a trail of victory through Separatists lines.

The exploits of Skywalker and Kenobi became legendary throughout the Republic. While Anakin was elevated as the "Hero With No Fear" for his daring heroics, Obi-Wan's more measured tactics earned him the reputation as "the Negotiator." Many times Kenobi was able to cease hostilities without the raising of a single blaster. When diplomacy failed and it did come to violence, the General was ready. Kenobi had the control of a complete army of clone troopers and the latest military hardware. His most trusted clone soldier, Commander 2224 -- also known as Cody -- served him well during close calls on Cato Neimoidia and elsewhere.

During the Clone Wars, Kenobi ascended to the rank of Jedi Master, and he occupied a position in the Jedi Council. He was able to contribute to the highest levels of Jedi strategy, and such a vaunted position allowed him to witness the strain between the Jedi order and the Office of the Chancellor firsthand.

Hadn't seen him in a while. Probably just not looking in the right spots. He is a ninja.

Hmm. Deep in enemy territory. Sounds like a ninja move.

RT: That reminds me. I haven't played Tenchu in a long while. Need to dust that one off.
