WORLD WAR II - PATTON, GEORGE] An interesting group of manuscript invasion maps and typed documents relating to Patton and the North African Campaign . Comprising eleven manuscript maps in color and pencil on thin paper dated November 9-11, 1942 (but most likely drawn just after the battles) depicting the American and British landings in French Morocco at Casablanca and other sites, two noted "Capt. Frazer's map of North Africa"; A telling report relating to the Patton "slapping" incident of 1943 (see note); A group of papers and reports including an "Activation of the Seventh Army" under Patton; two copies of Patton's order that "you are closing in for the kill ... Messina is our next stop"; a report that "Italy has been defeated has surrendered unconditionally;" reports regarding action in Morocco, the enemy situation at Campobello and other places; a "German Personality List for Sicily," etc. The drawings 8 x 13 inches (205 x 330 mm). Some edgewear, well preserved overall. Of note here is a copy of a letter to Senator Robert Reynold from the Secretary of War referring to the famous slapping "incident involving Lieutenant General George S. Patton Jr." Patton had apparently slapped a soldier being treated at a special hospital for those suffering with "battle anxiety," an event that had been leaked to the press the month of this report. General Eisenhower, whose responsibility it was to investigate the incident and discipline Patton, wrote a full report which is also attached to the letter. A narrative of the event follows in which Patton is described as losing his temper and in an "unseemly and indefensible manner upbraided the individuals, and in one of the cases cuffed the involved so that the man's helmet rolled off his head." With the maps present here, this archive is a revealing and detailed cache of papers relating to the North African Campaign. C
