Major General Terry de la Mesa Allen, pictured here when he was the commander of the 1st Infantry Division. A veteran of World War I, General Allen was loved by his men but barely tolerated by his superiors. Photo courtesy of University of Texas, El Paso.

General George S. Patton Jr. The photo was taken at the Desert Training Center near Indio, California, in 1942. At the time of the photo, Patton was a major general. The tank in the background was an M3A1 Stuart light tank. Patton assumed command of II Corps in March 1943, replacing the disgraced Maj. Gen. Lloyd Fredendall. Patton’s command style, though abrasive to the soldiers of the Big Red One, was a shot in the arm for II Corps. Photo courtesy of Real War Photos.
