General. Olympic athlete. Poet. George S. Patton was one of the most unstoppable players in the United States Army during the Second World War. He was feared by the enemy, including Adolf Hitler, who found him to be one of the most impressive men on the battlefront. Controversial and often unpredictable, this commander led determined men throughout North Africa and across Europe with relentless speed and persistence.

In this collection, Patton's personal poems, journal entries, quotations, and speeches are available for readers to explore and enjoy. Each turn of the page reveals another dimension of this man known for his unwillingness to tolerate malingering soldiers, the Germans, or misplaced humor in the face of danger.

Gary L. Bloomfield is the author and coauthor of two books about World War II and editor of two books on the topic. He is the former managing editor of Veterans of Foreign Wars magazine and an Army Journalist of the Year. A former civil servant himself, Bloomfield has appeared on CNN and various radio programs.
