Patton : Legendary World War II Commander Zoom

Patton : Legendary World War II Commander

Be the first to review this product

SKU: PP 031

Praise for his performance was precisely what George Smith Patton, Jr. had sought all his life. As a cadet at the Virginia Military Institute and West Point, he was already searching for what he called 'the undefinable difference' that distinguished a great general from the good ones. He led a mechanized attack in Mexico and a tank battalion during World War I. In World War II he turned American fortunes around in North Africa, chased the Germans out of Sicily, and sparked the breakout and liberation of France. When the Germans attacked the American First Army in the Battle of the Bulge, Patton turned his army north and smashed the German salient. He then drove into the heart of Germany and reached Czechoslovakia by war's end. Brilliant yet flawed, Patton's leadership style drove himself and his men to acts of bravery and victory. Half uncouth, provincial cowboy and half cultured sophisticate, the man behind the warrior mask was a complex and paradoxical person. He became an icon of the American military leader and the uncompromising individual.
