Publisher's Comments

"Patton's Way is a unique approach to the legend of General George S. Patton Jr. and his development and application of modern warfare. The book argues that popular representations of Patton are built on misconceptions and incomplete understandings abouthis approach to battle. The author identifies four core principles in Patton's creed: targeting the enemy's morale through shock; utilizing highly practiced combined arms mechanized columns; relying on mission tactics and flexible command and control; and employing multi-layered and synthesized intelligence systems to identify enemy capabilities and weak spots."--Provided
