I tried to find footage of Patton talking, but only see voiced over war-time documentary clips. Found this on a YouRememberThat.com discussion board post, though, to confirm:
Probably the most common picture we have of "old blood and guts", General George Patton, is George C. Scott's portrayal. Scott's gravely baritone voice would seem perfect for the part. The real General Patton hated his voice. It tended to be high-pitched, nasal, irritating, and at times, it bordered on effeminate. He hated public speaking because of this. To my knowledge, there exist only two short clips of him speaking. Because of his use of vivid imagery, cursing, ribald innuendos, and general vulgarity, his wife had all audio tapes of him speaking destroyed after his death. It was an effort on her part to clean up his image for posterity. He died in an auto accident in Europe after the end of WWII. One of his most famous speeches, is one given in front of The Third Army to prepare them for the long road to Berlin. This is the speech we hear in the opening moments of the movie "Patton". It was considerably sanitized for the movie in an effort to prevent people from avoiding the film. The actual text of that speech can be found in a number of places on the internet. He wrote of why he used vulgar language in addressing his troops. He felt they would better remember the important points if they were punched up with ribald expletives.

Blood and Guts sounded quite a bit like Elmer Fudd.

This shows pure ignorance put that along with the fact you keep calling everyone over there "American soldiers" shows what a kool-aid drinking bootlicker you are.

Mattis was an amazing general and has a flawless record, well right up until he chose to accept being the SecDef for an egomaniac who literally states he knows more than the generals.

Mattis failed in Afghanistan and the Middle East.

It simply is what it is...
Simple, it's what comes to mind reading your misinformed responses.

When Obama fired him, he let him go. He allowed the parting to be done with decorum and dignity. Something Trump never does. Trump has called him out many times. Please tell me more about a leader looking good when Trump has troubles showing that daily.

At that point, our only line of defense will be Trump's appointed Supreme Court, which is why RBG needs to say bye-bye very soon.

This is pro gun?

On February 20, 2018, President Trump issued a memorandum instructing the Attorney General “to dedicate all available resources to… propose for notice and comment a rule banning all devices that turn legal weapons into machineguns.”

That's pro-gun to you? My lord, you are the epitome of a Trumpard.

Pssst.....Trump never had bonespurs.....just a rich dad who got a doctor to make it up to keep him out of Vietnam.

That being said who cares about being PC? I think we can all agree that Trump obviously wears adult diapers.....he's shaped like an upside down turnip.

It simply is what it is...
Obama and Trump firing him are actually both feathers in his cap. Two complete duds who are 1/10th of the man Mattis is.

Hmm interesting stuff...kind of like how Lincoln is portrayed as having a booming deep voice that wasn't anything like he talked in real life. Although Daniel Day Lewis tried to do it accurately when he played him.
