The American coach Bob Bradley shares an interesting surname when it comes to Algeria and the United States.
Bradley, the son of a schoolteacher, was born into a poor family in rural Randolph County, near Clark, Missouri. He attended country schools where his father was the teacher. However, his father died when Bradley was nine. His mother moved to Moberly and remarried. Bradley graduated from Moberly High School in 1911, an outstanding student and captain of both the baseball and football teams.

Patton requested Bradley as his deputy, but Bradley retained the right to represent Eisenhower as well.
Bradley succeeded Patton as head of II Corps in April and directed it in the final Tunisian battles of April and May. Promoted to the rank of lieutenant general, Bradley commanded the Second Corps in the invasion of Sicily. He drove the Germans and Italians out of Sicily.
American and British forces landed at several points along the coast of French Morocco and Algeria on November 8, 1942, during Operation Torch.

Understanding the danger of a two-front war, German and Italian troops were ferried in from Sicily to occupy Tunisia,
