The end of WWII

General George S. Patton in his Dodge command vehicle acknowledging the cheers of the welcoming crowds on S Broadway and West 6th St. Downtown Los Angeles, CA., during his visit on June 9, 1945.

In June 1945, he came home a hero. Soon after Nazi Germany surrendered, an estimated 1 million fans crowded the streets of downtown L.A. to catch a glimpse of the charismatic warrior.
The adulation was cut short; Patton broke his neck in a car accident that December and died 12 days later.
His famous bull terrier, 'Willie', was sent home from Germany to live out his days with the general’s wife and daughters.
