About the Author:

MARTIN BLUMENSON, one of America's leading military historians, served as staff historian of Patton's Third Army. He is the author of many military histories, including The Patton Papers, hailed as ''remarkable'' by The New York Times.

Review:

''Martin Blumenson has written an extraordinary book about my father.'' --Ruth Ellen Patton Totten

''A gem of a biography, full of insights on the highly complex character of George S. Patton. It is gracefully written and -- as we expect from Blumenson -- authoritative. No previous work on Patton can match it.'' --Stephen E. Ambrose, New York Times bestselling author

''A detailed and persuasive study of Patton's character.'' --Publishers Weekly

''The best explanation of the Patton mystique we have had -- or are likely to have.'' --Robert Sherrod, World War II correspondent and historian

''Superb . . . Nobody knows Patton like Martin Blumenson, and nobody can tell his story with such verve and introspection.'' --Charles B. MacDonald, author of A Time for Trumpets
