    Ike was the freaking man.

    The UN wasn’t formed until 1945…

    Slakinator: No, but a bunch of NATIONS were UNITED against the Third Reich.

    Here’s a second amazing letter:

    Eisenhower’s letter to the troops written in case D-Day FAILED!

    “Our landings have failed and I have withdrawn the troops. My decision to attack at this time and place was based on the best information available. The troops, the air and the Navy did all that bravery could do. If any blame or fault attaches to the attempt it is mine alone.”

    He was assuming full responsibility for it if it collapsed…I’m stunned. Where has this sense of personal responsibility gone these days?

    Fuck the Nazi’s, your asses got served when we pushed back. Also, your “great” leader? Killed himself as a cowards way out, fucking pitiful. Then again, I’m drunk, so still, fuck the Nazi’s

    Wish I could be with you boys. It’s hell staying here in London drinking gin and tonic and playing slap and tickle with my jeep driver. She says hello.
