My father was threatened with court martial for sedition for discussing this stuff with other G.I.s. He shut up.
He was an interpreter/translator with German POWs at a camp in Florida. The prisoners were telling him what a mistake we were making with our “allies” in Russia. They told him that we should allow Patton to lead them (the Germans) to chase the Soviets back into Russia. This was around 1944.
wow...only problem was all of the murdered Jews by the Germans! Otherwise Patton’s idea was a great one!
