Description
In nine months and eight days of campaigning, the Third United States Army of George S. Patton Jr. moved faster and farther, killed or captured more of the enemy, and liberated more cities than any other army in World War II. The author of Miracle at Belleau Wood tells the story of a young man who, in the words of Dwight D. Eisenhower, was "born to be a soldier." Not only did Patton believe himself to be the incarnation and summation of great warriors past, but he became one of the most feared and esteemed field commanders of the 20th century as well. Beginning with an account of Pattonís magnificent drive across Europe during World War II, Alan Axelrod looks back at the trajectory that revealed the commanderís fighting destiny, from the youthful Lieutenant Patton who pursued the guerrillas of Pancho Villa deep into Mexico to the colonel who led Americaís first tank corps against the Germans in World War I.
