From the Publisher"Patton's Photographs is a unique portrait of a famous general who was also a photographer and a collector. It adds a new dimension to one of history's great commanders."
"A groundbreaking book that fills a vacuum in the understanding of one of America's truly outstanding military leaders . . . To see these pictures is to know and see the war through Patton's eye rather than just through his mind's eye. Here we have an added and welcome new dimension. . . . Patton's Photographs will be a fine addition to the library of any Patton, World War II, or military history student."
"A virtually unknown aspect of Gen. George S. Patton’s genius was his flair for photography. IN Patton's Photographs, military historian Kevin Hymel has assembled, written, and produced a visual tour de force that is a splendid tribute to an amazing life. The reader will see Patton as he really lived, experience what he saw, and better understand World War II through his eyes. This book is highly recommended to anyone interested in Patton and the war he fought."
"Through careful research and years of devoted study, Kevin Hymel shows us an intimate, little-known side of General Patton. This book breathes fresh life into our understanding of one of the most important, and fascinating, commanders of World War II."
"This book, with photos depicting the human condition in war and capturing the damage inflicted by various types of weapons, enriches our understanding of Patton, not only as a general but as a human being who earnestly sought to participate in and record great events as he saw them."
"Thanks to Kevin Hymel’s innovative research, the vast library of volumes on my grandfather’s life and career receives an essential new perspective in Patton's Photographs. The snapshots that he took during campaigns ranging from Africa to the Rhine convey the war as he saw it and further illuminate the mind and personality of one of history’s unique commanders."
"Kevin Hymel has done what I thought was virtually impossible. He has written a book about Patton that provides a fresh perspective to the enigmatic commander of the U.S. Third Army in World War II."
"Accompanied by a detailed text that adds new material to our understanding of Patton, the pictures show a new dimension of Patton--a visual record of what he wanted to remember of his service in America's largest war."
