Product Description

The film Patton highlighted Patton's flaws. Patton: The Pursuit of Destiny doesn't gloss over his faults, but lays its emphasis upon his brilliance as a battlefield commander, tactician, trainer, leader, and military expert. With flamboyant style and impulsive charisma, Patton was a harsh taskmaster who wrote tender letters home-a paradox of a man whose military efforts would make him one of America's greatest generals. 193 pages, softcover.

Publisher's Description

He was a harsh taskmaster who comforted dying soldiers and quietly commended their valor. A crusty, often foulmouthed commander who wrote tender letters home to the love of his life.

Gen. George S. Patton Jr. comes to life in these pages as one of the most colorful, enigmatic, and unfairly maligned leaders in U.S. military history. Often caricatured—as in the big-screen biopic, Patton—the general was a complex blend of battle-tested strengths and nearly fatal personal flaws.

Without varnishing over his shortcomings, Patton: The Pursuit of Destiny shatters myths and builds a compelling case for a deeper appreciation of the man who inspired unsurpassed loyalty and admiration from the soldiers who served under him.

Destined for an outsized life, Patton parlayed his family’s deep military roots, his World War I experiences, his Olympic exploits, and his passion for freedom to become one of the linchpins of Allied victory in World War II.
