Eisenhower reassigned General Patton from his beloved 3rd Army, the army he successfully led from the Normandy landings, to Czechoslovakia as Eisenhower could no longer keep General Patton in position as the Military Governor of Bavaria. General Patton was assigned to command the Fifteenth Army, actually a group of historians given status as an Army, with its headquarters in Bad Nauheim. On December 9, 1945, General Patton left Bad Nauheim for a hunting trip near Mannheim, during which he died after a car crash.When using our Germany trip maker site, you're building your holiday based on your own interests, visitor reviews, and the informed opinions of our well-traveled writers.
