Patton's orders in Jan/Feb were to advance on Dresden and pivot into Czechoslovakia, Ike changed his orders in March to advance directly on Bavaria. Patton was advancing from the Saarland after stemming the Bulge.
This is very very simple to understand. Patton is only a field army commander. Above him was Bradley, an army group commander, and above him is Ike, SHAEF commander. In January to February none of them had their sights set on anything besides getting inside Germany. They sure didn't have anything set on Eastern Germany when that entire sector had already been given to the Soviets. They sure as heck weren't concerned about concocting an operation to stop Germans from retreating south into Austria when the Germans were still tenaciously holding their borders.
No where at all is the Ore Mountains near Austria, which is Southeast of Bavaria, whereas Saxony, where the Ore mountains are located, only borders Czechoslovakia.
At this point you're either too ignorant to take seriously or you're trolling. Either way, I'm done responding to you, way to infuriating to keep having to explain why 2+2 isn't 5.[/QUOTE]
