Summaries and Reviews
Celebrating the fiftieth anniversary of V-E Day, a new edition of a military classic by General George S. Patton, Jr., draws on his vivid memories of battle and his detailed diaries to provide a firsthand chronicle of the war. Reprint. description: Product Description:

The personal and candid account of General Patton's celebrated, relentless crusade across western Europe during World War II


First published in 1947, War as I Knew It is an absorbing narrative that draws from Patton's vivid memories of battle and his detailed diaries, covering the moment the Third Army exploded onto the Brittany Peninsula to the final Allied casualty report. The result is not only a grueling, human account of daily combat and heroic feats—including a riveting look at the Battle of the Bulge—but a valuable chronicle by one of the most brilliant military strategists in history. Patton's letters from earlier military campaigns in North Africa and Sicily, complemented by a powerful retrospective of his guiding philosophies, further reveal a man of uncompromising will and uncommon character, which made "Georgie" a household name in mid-century America.
