General George S. Patton, Jr. was commander of the American Third Army in Europe during WWII. According to the German High Command, General Patton was the Allies’ “most modern general” and the “best commander of armored and infantry troops.” Field Marshal Von Rundstedt simply called him our “best.”
Patton’s army liberated France, Belgium, Luxembourg, Germany, Bavaria, Austria and Czechoslavakia. It was George S. Patton’s Third Army which traveled faster than the German blitzkrieg, captured or killed 1,000 Germans every day in combat, trapped 11 German divisions at Falaise, rescued the stranded Allies in Bastogne, finished off the Battle of the Bulge, surrounded and cut off 10 German divisions in the Hunsruck Mountains, crossed the Rhine with only 28 casualties, liberated the first concentration camp, and discovered the German gold reserve.
Yet, incredibly, General Patton himself was removed from the command of Third Army in disgrace. In “Patton Uncovered” you can delve into the high-level politics surrounding the military maneuvers, and learn of the deceit, treachery, betrayal and back-stabbing that were commonplace at headquarters. This book’s full-scale investigation uncovers the true objectives of every campaign, from Sicily to Berlin. To read more about it, click here.
