"Fame never yet found a man who waited to be found" - "In case of doubt attack" - "Know what you know and know what you don't know" Patton was the ultimate soldier's general. Everyone associated with him came under his spell and it is no exaggeration to say that they would have given their lives for him. This mystique that surrounded him bound him intimately to his troops who, throughout Patton's career felt privileged to serve him. George Patton tragically died on 20 December 1945 following a car crash, and this book is the story of his exploits during World War II as pieced together in 1947 by his wife from the General's letters and diaries. It contains many of the pithy sayings for which he was famous and conveys clearly the fire and brimstone attitude of the victor of the Battle of the Bulge.

From the Back Cover:

First published in 1947, War As I Knew It is the captivating memoir of George S. Patton, Jr., the legendary American general, incendiary warrior, and unparalleled military tactician of World War II. Drawing on his vivid memories of battle and detailed diaries, Patton dramatically recounts his celebrated Third Army's sweeping campaign across Western Europe right up to the final Allied casualty report. The result is a remarkable frontline view of daily strategies and heroic drivesincluding the rescue of the Battle of the Bulge from Allied infamy and the triumphant Palatinate Campaign - revealing a fascinating portrait of the full-of-vinegar, controversial commander. With selected prefatory letters from Patton's earlier ventures in North Africa and Sicily and a powerful concluding retrospective, War As I Knew It is a classic of American military history.

About the Author:

George S. Patton, Jr., was the commander of the US Third Army during the Allied Invasion of Normandy in 1944. A veteran of the First World War and a crucial figure in the development of the US Army’s armored warfare doctrine, his aggressive and successful leadership in World War II has led him to be called by many historians as one of the greatest generals of the war.
