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.
