More About The Fighting Pattons by Brian M. Sobel
 
 
 
Overview

The father was a legendary hero whose fame had a profound influence over his son, who was determined to make a mark on his own terms. The Fighting Pattons is their story. The elder Patton gained renown during World War II as a fearless commander devoted to his men. A complex figure driven by his knowledge of history and warfare, he was a professional soldier who loved the art of war and hated war itself. The younger Patton also lived an eventful life; he participated in the Berlin Airlift, served in Korea, and proved his valor during three tours of duty in Vietnam. A wealth of previously unpublished information, plus interviews with family, friends, and figures such as Richard Nixon and General William Westmoreland, make a fascinating history of an American military family.
