General George S. Patton, Jr., like a lot of other American soldiers, liked to collect souvenirs. However, General Patton didn’t bother with small
Nazi daggers, watch fobs, P-38’s (pistols) or other such trivial things.
He went for items like tanks, anti-tank guns, weapons carriers, field artillery pieces and so forth.
