"Generals, Fall IN!"

Wouldn't it be nice to be able to tell generals to 'fall in' ('fall in' meaning: To take one's place in a military formation i.e. to fall in-to formation)? Usually we all have to 'fall in' for them, unless you have 1/6 scale 12-inch versions of these generals, then you can make them 'fall in' for you :)

From left to right: GI Joe Historical Commanders Edition General Omar N Bradley, General Dwight David “Ike” Eisenhower and General George S Patton - all three played a big part in the successful invasion of France and Germany in Europe during the Second World War from 1944–45.

GI Joe General Omar Nelson Bradley was covered in an earlier post (link here)

GI Joe General Dwight D Eisenhower (full pictures here)

GI Joe General George S Patton was reviewed here
A much better 1/6 scale version of General Patton (with 4 stars) by Dragon posted here

Eisenhower dealt skillfully with difficult subordinates such as Omar Bradley and Patton, and allies such as Winston Churchill, Field Marshal Bernard Montgomery and General Charles de Gaulle.
