He was a harsh taskmaster who comforted dying
soldiers and quietly commended their valor. A crusty, often foulmouthed
commander who wrote tender letters home to the love of his life.
General George S. Patton Jr. comes to life in
these pages as one of the most colorful, enigmatic, and unfairly maligned
leaders in US military history. Often caricatured, as in the big-screen biopic,
Patton the general was a complex blend of battle-tested strengths and nearly
fatal personal flaws.
Without varnishing over his shortcomings, Patton:
The Pursuit of Destiny shatters myths and builds a compelling case for a
deeper appreciation of the man who inspired unsurpassed loyalty and admiration
from the soldiers who served under him.
Destined for an outsized life, Patton parlayed
his family’s deep military roots, his World War I experiences, his Olympic exploits,
and his passion for freedom to become one of the linchpins of Allied victory in
World War II. Download and start listening now!
