I have stayed in St Lo many times but never knew I flew a recon mission over it. Maybe too risky to make sense but VERY impressive
I didn’t know Ike was a qualified pilot either. I like how his trainers called him a poor pilot lol.
Maybe reckless but sometimes as commander you have to be a bit reckless.
Uh… isn’t the commander supposed to be the opposite of reckless? Because they might inspire their…uh… what’s the word… suborinates/juniors to be reckless?
A bit reckless perhaps, but this seems positively Rommel-esque!
Maybe he was trying to inspire some of his more timid commanders cough cough Montgomery.
Honestly, I think it was for his own piece of mind. Casualties were high….I think he wanted to eyeball for himself to see that everything that could be done was done.
