For the 3d US Army under General Patton, V-E Day, the end of World War II, marked the completion of 281 days of constant battle in the heart of Europe. This study chronicles, day-by-day, the situations which developed and the tactical combinations evolved for their successful solution. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
From Barnes & Noble
By V-E Day, May, 1945, General Patton's World War II Third Army had been continuously in battle for 281 days. The author, founder of the George Smith Patton, Jr. Historical Society, gives us a complete and revealing chronicle, beginning with the general champing at the bit, waiting for a call to action; and describing each day until the end of the European War. Such is the completeness of this book that every important officer is named, every department analyzed, every battle carefully chronicled in a day-by-day analysis. What emerges is a crystal-clear image, as though the reader were there on the battleground and inside the general's planning headquarters. The reader can follow not only the background of each tactical decision but the result of that decision. The result is an impeccable and very readable daily history of the Third Army and its colorful, determined leader, whose exploits during the Second World War are already legendary.
