Book News Annotation:

Interviews with the general's family and access to his private and public papers help military historian D'Este reveal the complex and contradictory personality behind the humorless facade (and beyond the hard-edged image created by the 1970 film Patton). In addition to opening up details of Patton's private life (his dyslexia, his fear of dying in battle, and his interest in poetry, for instance), D'Este also analyzes the general's military career, including his success in Sicily and his dramatic rescue of American forces in the Battle of the Bulge.
