Came across this today. Patton mentions "Kent Lambert Incident". Anyone know what that means? He went on to say that General Marshall had wired him that my repeated mistakes have shaken the confidence of the country and the War Department. General Marshall even harked back to the Kent Lambert incident in November 1942--certainly a forgiving s.o.b. Holograph diary: George S. Patton. Diary entry, May 1, 1944, Churchill and the Great Republic (A Library of Congress Interactive Exhibition, Text Version) EDIT: I found out that Col Kent Lambert had been some type of operations officer on the staff of Patton's First Armored Corps but nothing else about him yet.
