Due to a few comments at a press conference, he is relieved of his command of the Third Army by General Eisenhower. After receiving the news, he is approached by General Bradley, who lauds Patton for his efforts. Patton then takes his dog for a walk into fields of Bavaria, lamenting that "all glory is fleeting."

Factual error: When Patton orders his driver to drive to the Carthaginian battlefield he addresses him as "sergeant". He is, however, wearing corporal's chevrons. A famous stickler for discipline and ceremonial, Patton is not likely to have made a mistake like this.
