As great a field leader as Patton was, Ike was proved right. The US was war-weary & would not have supported Patton's projected invasion of the USSR, which would have also poisoned relations with Europe, which would have been the battleground, for a third time. It took 44 years, but with US pressure the USSR crumbled without another nightmare war.
