This hard-hitting, hard-to-put-down book tells the story of General George S. Patton, Jr.—the most loved, most hated, most controversial combat general of World War II, whose career reached its peak during 1944-1945 as leader of the Third Army.

Utilizing access to General Patton’s diary, personal letters, memoranda and speeches, author Harry H. Semmes endeavours to illustrate the General’s rationale and motives behind his actions, and to elucidate the events that shaped the General’s life. Semmes furthermore sought to demonstrate the power of Patton’s command during battle, and the influence on those who fought alongside him.
