About the Book:
General George Smith Patton Jr. was a paradox of a man, at any given time capable of commanding great armies with a blustery presence, or of communing with the muses with the sensitivity of a poet. Beyond question, he ranks as the most colorful and flamboyant American fighting general to serve in the Mediterranean and European theaters during World War II. His blunt candor and affinity for getting into trouble sometimes detracted from his military genius for waging war. He was a man at odds with himself—driven by his military heritage and a keen sense of destiny to become larger than life. Although rivals often disliked him, his men loved him. The Germans feared him more that any other general in Europe in World War II. Patton—“Old Blood and Guts”—was the premier tank commander of that war.
