Abstract:
While Patton remains an iconic figure 70 years after his death, few fully appreciate him as a strategic thinker. Indeed, his flamboyant personality often obscures the fact that he was a lifelong student of the military art and a true strategic visionary. This short volume introduces readers to a more complete and nuanced Patton. By tracing his intellectual development and connecting these views to the issues of the present day, this book offers a bold a fresh view on the famous general. While Patton was one of America's greatest warriors, he was also a bold and visionary thinker. This book pro.
