We are very lucky Patton was on our side, and not a 2nd Montgomery.

General Patton's book is excellent, with the one wish that more maps be included which would help the reader follow the military maneuvers more clearly. The other downfall of this "new" printing of the book is the "new" introduction by R. Atkinson. His mindset and writings are an insult to General Patton. The General goes into great detail explaining his viewpoint on numerous subjects (part of what make the book great reading), but in the introduction Atkinson says Patton is wrong, and goes further disagreeing with the opinion and pride Patton had for U.S. fighting forces. R.Atk evidently cannot comprehend the difference between a war of necessity and a political war 20 years later. I would suggest that readers buy an older version of Patton's book, with the original introduction. This older version is available thru Amazon.
