George S. Patton, Paperback / softback Book

George S. Patton Paperback / softback

Illustrated by Steve Noon

Part of the Command series

Description

George S. Patton Jr. was the iconic American field commander of World War II, and widely regarded as the US Army's finest practitioner of mechanized warfare.

This title examines Patton's colorful life and leadership in three wars, with a concentration on his command in World War II.

Despite his ability, Patton was thoroughly reviled by most GIs, partly due to his insistence on traditional military discipline in the ranks, but also because of his unwillingness to pander to the growing power of the press.

This combination of ability and controversy have combined to make him one of the most interesting figures in American military history.
