Of all the scenes in Patton the one that disturbed me the most when I saw it as a kid (when it first came out) was the one in which Patton slaps the soldier who was in the MASH unit for "losing his nerve."

Patton's remedy was to send him to the front, where the action was heaviest.

The slapping incident damaged Patton's reputation, and his military career afterward. It seems ironic that one of the two soldiers Patton had slapped speculated that Patton was suffering from battle fatigue himself.
