Riassunto: George S. Patton was a general who achieved greatness in his field by contradicting his own nature. A cavalryman steeped in romantic military tradition, he nevertheless pulled a reluctant American military into the most advanced realms of highly mobile armored warfare. An autocratic snob, Patton created unparalleled rapport and loyalty with the lowliest private in his command. An outspoken racist, he led the only racially integrated U.S. military unit in World War II. A profoundly insecure individual, he made his Third Army the most self-confident and consistently victorious fighting force in the European theater. An exuberantly profane man, he prayed daily and believed God had destined him for military greatness.

Alan Axelrod delivers a fascinating account of Patton's extraordinary life and legacy.

Descrizione del libro:

Palgrave is delighted to launch this new series with a terrific title--Alan Axelrod, the bestselling author of Patton on Leadership, on General George S. Patton. Axelrod succeeds in looking beyond the contextualization and analysis of Patton?s military innovations and leadership strategies to reveal his legacy and influence on warfare today. Patton was a great tactician who single-handedly created America?s first generation of desert warriors, but he was also the most controversial general in U.S. history. Patton?s life and methods still evoke passionate debate and in this concise volume, Alan Axelrod finally settles the argument.


Forthcoming titles in the Great Generals series are:


Ulysses S. Grant by John Mosier

Dwight D. Eisenhower by John Wukovitz

Curtis Lemay by Barrett Tillman
