Read full description of the books:
Where do I start?! Killing a gang member and tying his corpse to the hood of his car, slapping two soldiers in Sicily for being cowards, urinating in the Rhine. Sitting in the front row of a pew in church with a watch timing a chaplain's sermons when he said they should be no more than ten minutes. Exploits to get gas for his tanks. Repeatedly told his troops that if they failed he did not want see them alive. Soldiers would kidnap his dog in the middle of the month when they ran short of money and returned it for the $2.00 reward. The armed forces certainly have their share of drama queens and Patton is no exception. It certainly wasn't boring.
For all the outlandishness that was General George S Patton, D'Este does a great job of portraying the good with the bad. Patton was deeply religious, wrote poetry, and cared for his soldiers and never asked them to do what he was unwilling to do himself. His was a constant presence. I seriously think Patton could scare the devil. And I think he fell one to many times from his horse and it affected his brain. However, I share the opinion of his soldiers that were I going through the very depths of hell, there would be no one else I would want leading me.
