Having fought with distinction (winning the Silver Star and the Croix de Guerre) in the First World War as a pilot, Charles Russell Codman retired back to civilian life believing that his fighting days were over. However he re-entered the army to fight on the side of Democracy once again, and before long his unique qualifications led him to being appointed as aide-de-camp to no lesser general than George S. Patton Jr. This book is the fascinating story of Codman’s experiences as part of General Patton’s staff from the sands of North Africa to eventual victory in Germany. A rare insight into the wartime career at the headquarters of America’s finest fighting general of the Second World War.

“THIS book is compiled from letters written to my wife during thirty-three months of service (1942-1945) in the European theater of operations during World War II.

“At the end of the North African campaign, I was appointed A.D.C. to General George S. Patton, Jr., serving from then on as his senior aide-de-camp until after V-E Day and his return to the United States. While General Patton is naturally the central and dominating figure of this journal, the latter is in no sense an attempt at either biography or military analysis.”—The Author
