Overview

The Fighting Pattons by Brian M. Sobel

In America's triumph over Nazi Germany, no name was more legendary than Patton, the general feared and admired even by his enemies. While Patton cut a path of victory in Europe, his son was growing up in his father's footsteps, rubbing shoulders with the sons and daughters of presidents, generals, and kings. Decades later, George S. Patton would get his chance to prove his valor. But this was a different kind of war, in a place called Vietnam....

Brimming with never-before-published information, plus interviews with such intriguing historical figures as Richard Nixon and General William Westmoreland, The Fighting Pattons captures a remarkable family through seasons of tragedy and victory. From their actions on the field to the abiding sense of duty that motivated them, here are two men who found a home in war, two men who served with brilliance, loyalty, and above all, an abiding commitment to the men who followed them into battle.
