A convoy of 30 historical U.S. military vehicles rode through Prague on Friday within celebrations of the 70th anniversary of the country’s liberation from Nazi rule. According to the organizers, the ride was organized not only in remembrance of US war veterans, but also to symbolically fulfil the unfulfilled wish of General George Smith Patton to liberate Prague. Although General Patton’s army could have progressed to Prague he was bound by an agreement with Russia to stop at the demarcation line in western Bohemia. The convoy´s arrival in Prague annually opens its tour of western Bohemian towns that were liberated by the 3rd U.S. army under Patton´s command. It will culminate with a ceremonial parade in the West Bohemian town of Plzen on May 3.
