Overview

"Fame never yet found a man who waited to be found" - "In case of doubt attack" - "Know what you know and know what you don't know" Patton was the ultimate soldier's general. Everyone associated with him came under his spell and it is no exaggeration to say that they would have given their lives for him. This mystique that surrounded him bound him intimately to his troops who, throughout Patton's career felt privileged to serve him. George Patton tragically died on 20 December 1945 following a car crash, and this book is the story of his exploits during World War II as pieced together in 1947 by his wife from the General's letters and diaries. It contains many of the pithy sayings for which he was famous and conveys clearly the fire and brimstone attitude of the victor of the Battle of the Bulge.
