Very Well

My second listening of this book, very fey insight to the man responsible for success but at a high cost both to himself and his soldiers. But freedom comes at a high cost. We baby boomers are the recipients of the benefits.

Loved it. Well written and very different from your normal book of this type. It moves along at a great pace in spite of its length. Warning--don't start it until you have a good afternoon for listening to because you won’t want to put it down.

Book was a biography of every facet of Patton's life. What I was interested in was details about his European campaign that the book never went into detail about.

Lovely

After listening to this excellent book that described the journey of Patton, I would love to see a movie production of the early years up to WWI. The man was the second coming of Theodore Roosevelt and more so.

Concise Book

Forget almost everything you thought you knew about Patton. This is a very good book although the family history in the beginning is hard to follow. What a loser general Omar Bradley was. The G. I's general-nope; just a weasel.
