WWII Four Famous Generals: Patton, Bradley, Hodges and Eisenhower

This photo was taken by a U.S. Army Signal Corps photographer inside Germany in 1945 near the end of World War II. The photo shows a field meeting between (left to right) Gen. George Patton, Gen. Omar Bradley, Gen. Courtney Hodges, and Gen. Dwight Eisenhower. You can see fascinating details like the five stars on Ike's trench coat collar and Patton's custom-made uniform with his special pistol grips on the gun sticking out of his holster.
