The Greatest--and Most Controversial--Field Commander in American History

With his genius for tank warfare, General George Patton stormed across Europe and drove into the heart of Nazi Germany. Standing before his men with four rows of battle ribbons on his jacket, spurs on his cavalry boots, and his ivory-handled revolvers strapped around his waist, General George Patton was an imposing figure--and that was his intention. He would always be in front of his men and they would know it.

He was supremely confident in his own ability and often irritated his commanding officers. Nevertheless, he accomplished the impossible, not once but many times. Patton was loved by his troops and feared by the enemy. With his fierce determination, he is considered one of the greatest military figures in history.

General George Patton February 15, 2011
Reviewer: Misty Marr from Buckeye, AZ United States  
While I am not to keen on the nickname "Old Blood and Guts," this book is a history lesson turned into a story.  You children will enjoy reading about the historical facts surrounding General George Paton, a man who is considered to be one of the greatest historical military men in history..
