Publisher's Summary

The name Patton has almost become synonymous with general; the two words have become nearly interchangeable in American history. When the name General Patton comes to mind, we are automatically inundated with themes of strength and tough resolution.

Patton was a man who seemed to embody the old American ethos of the rugged individual who shattered all expectations, decimated the status quo, and pulled himself up by his bootstraps, succeeding when all odds were against him just because he was audacious enough to try. In his exploits, Patton seems to loom larger than them all.

Inside, you will hear about....

  • A Patent for Patton
  • In Between War
  • This Means War
  • Operation Husky
  • Invasion of Normandy
  • The Battle of the Bulge
  • Man of Controversy
  • The Last Days of Patton
  • And much more!

But Patton was not some comic book superhero, he was a real person and just as flawed as the rest of us. He had his hopes and fears, he made his mistakes, and he lived his life. In order to understand Patton, you can’t focus on just one side of this larger-than-life personality; you have to take in the whole picture. This audiobook allows you to do just that.

Over already?

Fairly good content but read as if in a rush to finish. Also much too short.

Way too short

This is only one hour long and doesn't seem to cover much more than you'd quickly read in a wikipedia article.
