In December 1945, General Patton sustained life threatening injuries in a car crash near Mannheim, Germany. He died at the hospital in Heidelberg 12 days later on December 21. General Patton was 60 years-old. General Patton is buried in the American Military Cemetery of Hamm in Luxembourg, alongside the other soldiers of the 3rd Army in accordance with his desire “to be buried with his men”.
Considered one of the most successful Combat Generals in US history, George Patton was the first officer assigned to the Tank Corps in WWI. During WWII, he commanded the US Seventh Army in the Mediterranean Theater and the US Third Army in France and Germany after the Allied invasion of Normandy in June 1944. Lest We Forget.
