"Patton ... general during World War II and led campaigns through Mexico, Sicily, and North Africa ... an olympiad ... extremely severe."
1. Was Mexico part of the Pacific Theater of WWII?
2. Patton had a big ego, but being an entire "Olympiad" is a stretch.
3. Only moderately severe, IMHO.

"He was ... homosexual, and was a player of the flute."
