Publisher's Summary

Patton’s life was a patchwork of a hard-driving leadership style, a colorful and sarcastic personality, and a series of dire political missteps. His image is often contradictory. On one hand, he was a hot spark who could often fly off the handle and say and do things that were injurious to himself and others. On the other hand, he was a gifted orator whose capacity to inspire his troops was second to none. Reconciling those elements of his being can sometimes be a tricky proposition.

Chapters include:

  • Born to Be a Soldier
  • Foreign Wars
  • Between the Wars
  • World War II Begins
  • Hard Fighting Ahead
  • Normandy
  • Normandy
  • The Battle of the Bulge
  • Germany
  • After the Fighting
  • Legacy

And much more!

What makes Patton a controversial figure, and who was he, really? From privileged birth to Olympic athlete to conqueror, this is the story of George S. Patton.

good one

The author used two diaries along with interviews and a research for a behind the scenes report which reads like an exciting novel. A powerful book that changed my mind about the heros of World War II and the intrigue of the worlds leaders at the time. Amazing how politics played their part in that war.

Excellent Book

This is a very thorough look at General Patton. It presents his background and explains how and why he became probably the most valuable General in the European Theater.

Amazing book

A history book that reads like a novel. Filled with detailed research, the author does an excellent job of weaving the narratives of several different people into one cohesive story. Brilliant book, I could not put down.

Excellent

It's the material that splits ordinary beings from deep thinkers, from Geniuses. I principally like that this product. The price bearing in mind the quantity and quality for this product is the key selling point and is really un-matchable with anything else out there.

AN INFORMATIVE LISTEN

Everything about this bio is surprising. So much interesting information was revealed throughout the whole audiobook, it seemed like it lasted for more than 1 hr because it covered the most important events and tragedies. Examples of his music are also heard. The narrator is one of the best I've heard.
