Ask a silver-haired veteran of World War II his branch of service and where he served, and hell reply, "Navys Atlantic Fleet." "Marine in the South Pacific." "Army Air Force based in Italy." If this man is a Gl veteran of North Africa, Sicily, or the Third Army in Europe, however, his response will be a terse, "I was with Patton." General George S. Patton was a larger-than-life figure whose genius for mechanized warfare and relentless pursuit of the enemy made him one of the great commanders of World War II. This coupled with his swaggering self-confidence, insufferable brashness, penchant for profanity, explosive temper, countless eccentricities, and uncanny talent for exasperating his superiors, made Patton a legend. What was it like serving under this unforgettable general? I Was With Patton uncovers the stories of the brave men and women who knew him, worked with him, fought for him, and gave their lives for him. Ranging from the humorous to the horrific, this fascinating book is a remarkable, one-of-a-kind collection of remembrances and anecdotes as told by the individuals who experienced World War II under Pattons command. Any soldier who served under the watch of General George S. Patton was shaped in his image and infused with his aggressiveness, sense of destiny, and pride. What Patton demanded of his troops and the results they achieved went beyond rational explanation. His extraordinary command and their exceptional performance set them apart, and they knew it. Inside are front-line accounts from soldiers who served under the legendary general whose hell-for-leather drive finally impaled Hitlers Germany and changed the world forever.

What was it like to fight against one of the most hard-driving generals in history? He is remembered as an officer with few equals, a leader who attained legendary status while commanding corps and armies as a general during World War II. Nicknamed 'Old Blood and Guts,' he was also well known for his hard attitude, eccentricities, and controversial outspokenness. But no matter the image or label attached to his name, few will dispute General George S. Patton Jr.'s place as a truly timeless figure in the annals of military history. In Fighting Patton, U.S. international affairs analyst Harry Yeide is the first to examine this legendary leader through the eyes of his enemies: the opposing German commanders of WWII. Featuring hundreds of unpublished unit reports, officer accounts, and telephone transcripts all uncovered during Yeide's extensive exploration of German wartime records - Fighting Patton exposes the German perspective on how and why they lost their battles with Patton's forces. This truly unique narrative follows Patton's rise through the ranks in the Mexican Expedition and World War I as well as his many campaigns throughout World War II, from Tunisia, Sicily, and Normandy to Lorraine, the Bulge, and the heart of Germany. The result is a fresh, fascinating, and beautifully illustrated take on one of the most storied figures of twentieth-century warfare.
