What People are Saying About This
"For anyone with a serious interest in General Patton and his Third Army's achievements, Michael Green's pictorial book Patton's Third Army In World War ll is a must for your enjoyment and collection."—Stephen F. McLean, President, The Patton Museum Foundation
"This coffee-table book covering the post–D Day war in Europe focuses solely on the Third Army. Although the text explains an oft-told tale, the book is visually excellent, with outstanding photos that mainly come from the National Archives, here with excellent captions. A fine companion volume to text-driven World War II books."
