21st Century Patton : Strategic Insights for the Modern Era Paperback / softback

Part of the 21st Century Foundations series

Description

While General George S. Patton Jr. remains an iconic figure seventy years afterhis death, few fully appreciate him as a strategic thinker.

Indeed, hisflamboyant personality often obscures the fact that he was a lifelong studentof the military arts, a true strategic visionary, and a unique figure in Americanmilitary history.

This short volume introduces readers to a more complete andnuanced Patton.

By tracing his intellectual development and connecting hisviews on strategic thought and history to the issues of the present day, thisbook offers a bold, fresh view on the famous general. Linking Patton's success as a warfighter to his efforts as a thinker, this bookhopes to kindle debate on managing human capital within the military.

Mostsurely the book will demonstrate that-like Patton- the seeds of militarysuccess can be planted throughout a lifetime of formal and self-directed studyof the military arts.
