"There was never a moment in our lives that we were not reminded that our father was the finest, bravest, most gallant, and best-looking man who ever lived and that he was destined for unimaginable glory. This we took for granted. Being our father's children was a special influence in all our lives, but the greatest, most pervasive, and most interesting influence in my life was Ma." The Button Box is the loving memoir of Beatrice Ayer Patton (1886-1953), the wife of one of the greatest military figures in history, General George S. Patton, Jr. Written by the Pattons' daughter, Ruth Ellen, the book covers Beatrice's life from her youth in a wealthy New England family until her death, with an emphasis on her years of marriage to George Patton. A supportive and loving wife, Beatrice was accomplished in her own right as an equestrian, musician, lecturer, sailor, and internationally published author. Courageous and adventurous, Beatrice played a significant role in her husband's life. Without her, General Patton might never have reached his own level of success. Although there have been numerous books written on George S. Patton, The Button Box provides a unique perspective on the general's complex personality as well as a rare and intimate look inside his famous American family, a glimpse of the "Old Army" that formed the cadre of the army of World War II, and a detailed description of life "between the wars" in a society not to be seen again. Most important, though, it is the story of a truly fascinating woman, told with love and a rowdy sense of humor by her daughter.

Includes numbers maps and illustrations. “Published just as news of Patton’s untimely death in Heidelberg on December 21, 1945 reached the author, this book is not an official biography of General George Smith Patton, Jr., but “it is an interpretative study of an American who typifies in his career and personality a phase of history which has just ended with the last of what we may come to know as the ‘Gunpowder Wars.’” So far, Patton has been written about almost exclusively under the title of “Old Blood and Guts,” though no one associated with him or his armies ordinarily calls him by that name. The impression given by newspaper and magazine accounts is of a brilliant and impetuous general who makes war as exciting and colorful a spectacle as an epic in glorious technicolor.”—Author’s Preface. Written by European Theater War Correspondent James H. Wellard with the assistance of General Patton’s widow, this biography was one of the first to portray George S. Patton as being more than the stereotypical warrior as he is often painted.

George S. Patton: On Guts, Glory, and Winning relies on the writings, speeches, and poems of George Patton, and includes his prayer to stop the rain during the battle of northern Europe. What separates this book from all of the many about World War II’s most famous battle commander is the extensive use of exquisite B&W combat photos on every spread, which illuminate the text on those pages. U.S. Army General George S. Patton is one of the greatest and most controversial battle commanders of World War II. His tactics were criticized by his detractors, lauded by his peers, and feared by the Nazis in North Africa, Sicily, France, and northern Europe. Some erroneously assumed he plunged his troops into battle with little or no forethought, but in fact he studied his opponent’s writings and tactics, knew the terrain and weather conditions on anticipated fields of fire, and even relied on the Bible for guidance. Almost no other general or world leader from World War II has been written about more than Old Blood and Guts Patton – a nickname he hated. Even today, despite advances in weaponry and technology, military commanders still study his battle tactics.

Intrigued by hints of “the bigger man” behind the war personality of Gen. George S. Patton, Jr., the Curator of History of the West Point Museum and a former “Army wife” studied and compared innumerable legends and stories about him. The resulting profile is the unvarnished Patton, as the public saw him and as his friends and soldiers knew him. Based solidly on contemporary sources, many of them never before tapped by historians, Patton’s exploited in Mexico, in France in 1918, and during World War II, are strung together by kernels of truth often more startling than the fiction which has surrounded them. One of America’s most famous and controversial generals is depicted through his attitude toward his famous hand guns and uniforms, and the manner in which he reacted to war and to peace. Four pistols are featured in the book, because four pistols were featured in his ife. Sixteen pages of pertinent illustrations, many published for the first time…including the only known photograph of Patton carrying two pistols…accompany the documented narrative. The pistol expert will find detailed appendixes on General Patton’s favorite weapons and their accouterments. Patton and His Pistols is a book for everyone interested in Patton the leader and Patton the man.

US General George Patton was a hard-nosed old soldier, nicknamed Old Blood and Guts. He had the ability to inspire and instruct, but was not easily accommodated by those above or below him. This study shows his military tactics, his relationships with his subordinates and his superiors, and his status as a master planner, strategist, tactician and charismatic leader. In two major theatres he proved himself more than just a cavalier warrior. This book attempts to throw light on one of the most remarkable figures in military history.

George S. Patton is one of the most controversial, celebrated, and popular military leaders in American history, and his accomplishments and victories have been greatly documented. Yet Patton spent years in the Army before garnering national attention and becoming a highly-regarded and respected military leader. This work explores Patton's beginnings as a driven and intrepid soldier and his battles leading up to the Great War -- military experiences which would be influential in his development as a commander. Drawing upon Patton's papers and archival documents in the National Archives, this is an early-career biography of the eminent military leader. It begins with his exploits as a relatively junior but ambitious Army officer who, due to his family's wealth and influence, was able to join General John J. Pershing's American Expeditionary Force (AEF). This assignment would ultimately change his life in two ways: it would make Pershing the mentor Patton would emulate for the rest of his life, and it would catapult his military career as the first tanker in the US Army. This study follows Patton's trajectory, from the creation of the Tank Corps and the Light Tank School, to Patton's eventual successes and injuries during the Battle of Saint Mihiel, the attack into Pannes, and the Meuse-Argonne Offensive. Revealed is that the experience Patton gained in World War I was seminal in his evolvement as a leader and laid the groundwork for not only his own personal future triumphs but also for the success of the entire United States Army armored forces in World War II.

This is a long forgotten work by World War II General George S. Patton, Jr., written while he was still a young lieutenant and fencing instructor at the Mounted Service School in Fort Riley, Kansas. It would most likely have been lost to history if not for the preservation efforts of U.S. Army Heritage and Education Center in Carlisle, Pennsylvania. It is reprinted here in its entirety, including all detailed lessons and original photographs and graphics prepared by Patton to illustrate his points. (You might even recognize a young George Patton in some of the pictures.) More than a course of instruction, "Diary of the Instructor in Swordsmanship" captures the intellect and mindset of Patton and illustrates why he was destined to become one of America's finest battlefield commanders. This was not Patton's first publication on the topic. The year before he had authored "Saber Exercise 1914," the official Army training manual on the topic. But unlike "Saber Exercise 1914" which had been carefully staffed and edited in Washington before its official release, Patton distributed his "Diary of the Instructor in Swordsmanship" informally at the request of his student officers looking for more detailed instruction. Sprinkled throughout are Patton's personal recommendations and opinions. For example, he explains why it is important to teach Army officers the art of fencing but only provide a limited instruction to enlisted soldiers-and how training in swordsmanship helped troopers develop more aggressive instincts for battle. You can almost hear his voice, a little younger perhaps, but still unmistakably Patton.
