Our vision of Patton - one of America's most charismatic and successful generals - has largely been formed by the popular film "Patton" released in 1970. Patton is portrayed as a swashbuckling, brash, profane, impetuous soldier who wore ivory-handled revolvers into battle and slapped hospitalized soldiers around the face. Behind this facade lay a very different, contradictory personality, an intensely private man, a devoted student of history, a writer of poetry, a man very unsure about his own abilities, humble, who could burst into tears quite unexpectedly. He trained himself for greatness with a determination matched, perhaps, by no other general in the 20th century. With access to Patton's private and public papers, Carlo D'este attempts to reveal the real Patton.

Descripción Harper Collins. (Subject: Political & Biographies - General) A study of the life of General George S. Patton - considered by his German opponents the most able of the US Generals of WWII. An extrovert but also an intensely private man, 'Old Blood and Guts' wore two ivory handled pistols at his belt and slapped two hospitalised GI's for 'cowardice'. But he motivated his troops and frightened the enemy - until Eisenhower relieved him of his command in 1945. He died in an accident shortly thereafter.
