The author denies and denigrates the very idea of battle fatigue - in his estimation, along with general Patton's the guy with shot nerves was a coward who should just have been shot at the unit level.
The author has several derogatory things to say about homosexuals and their trustworthiness and reliability. The author finds fault with just about everybody in the world except George Patton.
I am thrilled with my purchase!
He supplies information about incidents. He just copies a document/transcript/letter without giving his interpretation.
The author allows the reader to draw his/her own conclusions.
Everything in the movie is noted in the book.
The movie version of the "slapping incident" is not exactly what happened.
Given the situation at the time, the punishment was unwarranted. It was a political reprimand rather than a military one.
Think today, Patreus and Mc Cristal.
