Sinopsis:

This book presents a unique view of a military family, and, most importantly, displays the lives of a father and son: a father who would become an American hero and a son who excelled on his own terms, but who was profoundly influenced by a figure who had gained legendary status. The elder Patton gained widespread fame during World War II as a fearless commander and motivator of soldiers in war. He was brash, supremely self-confident, and greatly admired by the enemy; many German officers would later say Patton was the most important weapon in the American arsenal. A complex man driven by his knowledge of history and warfare, the elder Patton was compassionate and easily moved to tears. He was a professional soldier who loved the art of war and hated war itself.The younger Patton has also lived a most exciting life, having been acquainted with many of the famous names in political and military history. Together, father and son logged 79 years of continuous miltary service. They fought in every American conflict from the punitive action taken in Mexico in 1916 through Vietnam.

This is the only book on the Patton family that includes commentary from both the son and daughter of General George S. Patton, concerning their father's life and times. Including a vast array of never before published information, this book is also a family story and a contemporary history of the wars that shaped the 20th century. There are interviews with the late Richard Nixon, General William Westmoreland, General James Dozier, Jimmy Doolittle, and many others.

From the Inside Flap:

In America's triumph over Nazi Germany, no name was more legendary than Patton, the general feared and admired even by his enemies. While Patton cut a path of victory in Europe, his son was growing up in his father's footsteps, rubbing shoulders with the sons and daughters of presidents, generals, and kings. Decades later, George S. Patton would get his chance to prove his valor. But this was a different kind of war, in a place called Vietnam....

Brimming with never-before-published information, plus interviews with such intriguing historical figures as Richard Nixon and General William Westmoreland, The Fighting Pattons captures a remarkable family through seasons of tragedy and victory. From their actions on the field to the abiding sense of duty that motivated them, here are two men who found a home in war, two men who served with brilliance, loyalty, and above all, an abiding commitment to the men who followed them into battle.
