Product Overview

He was a harsh taskmaster who comforted dying soldiers andquietly commended their valor. A crusty, often foulmouthed commander who wrotetender letters home to the love of his life.

Gen. George S. Patton Jr. comes to life in these pages as oneof the most colorful, enigmatic, and unfairly maligned leaders in U.S. militaryhistory. Often caricatured-as in the big-screen biopic, Patton-the general wasa complex blend of battle-tested strengths and nearly fatal personal flaws.

Without varnishing over his shortcomings, Patton: The Pursuit of Destiny shattersmyths and builds a compelling case for a deeper appreciation of the man whoinspired unsurpassed loyalty and admiration from the soldiers who served underhim.

Destined for an outsized life, Patton parlayed his family'sdeep military roots, his World War I experiences, his Olympic exploits, and hispassion for freedom to become one of the linchpins of Allied victory in WorldWar II.
