This was a very accurate look into the military life of our nation's best military commander to ever serve in the U.S.Military! Yes, he was hard nosed and strict with his men. Yes he got into hot water with Ike for slapping around a couple of men, but in my opinion, he was just trying to get their attention and wake them up as to the fact that they are in a war zone. Patton was a fighting general. He didn't know what to do with himself when they put him on the sideline. He needed to be where the action was. He wasn't affraid to speak his mind and tell it like it was. It's too bad Ike had to cuddle to the British and Montgomery or Patton would have won the war almost all by himself as a leader. It's too bad they didn't listen to him and let him go on after the Soviets also. Then we wouldn't have gone through the cold war like we did. Ike was more interested in his political carrer, like Patton said in the movie "Patton". The man was an honest to goodness All American Hero!
