Publisher's Summary

A military classic by a legendary American general.

War as I Knew It is the personal and candid account of General George S. Patton, Jr.'s celebrated, relentless crusade across Europe during World War II.

First published in 1947, this absorbing narrative draws on Patton's vivid memories of battle and his detailed diaries, from the moment the Third Army exploded onto the Brittany Peninsula to the final Allied casualty report. The result is not only a grueling, human account of daily combat but also a valuable chronicle of the strategies and fiery personality of a brilliant warrior.

Patton in his own words

All students of mi!itary history, especially the twentieth century should read all the
memoirs of major and minor participant's, which they can. General Patton sadly died before he ds diary and the work he was doing with the 15th Army after losing the
3rd Army marks a candid ,compelling and truthfully.. I recommend not only lisiintercluding in your personal library..

A must read for anyone in a leadership position.

The narrator did a splendid job illustrating the words of the late great General. The only person who could one up this performance would be George C. Scott.
