Patton's WarPatton's War

An American General’s Combat Leadership

Kevin M. Hymel

Narrated by Jim Woods

Available from Audible

Book published by University of Missouri Press

During his life, George S. Patton Jr. starred as an Olympic athlete in the 1912 Stockholm games, chased down Mexican bandits, and led tanks into battle in World War I. But he is best remembered for his exploits on the field of battle in World War II. Patton's War, the first of two volumes, follows the general from the beaches of Morocco to the fields of France, right before the birth of Third Army on the continent. In highly engaging fashion, Hymel uncovers new facts and challenges long-held beliefs about the mercurial Patton, not only examining his relationships with his superiors and fellow generals and colonels, but also with the soldiers of all ranks whom he led. Through extensive research of soldiers' memoirs and interviews, Hymel adds a new dimension to the telling of Patton's WWII story.


“For all who have any level of interest in General George S. Patton, and World War II, I highly recommend this book as a very readable account of one of the most consequential and controversial figures in United States history.”

History in Motion

“With Patton’s War, Kevin Hymel has established himself as one of the finest historians in the United States. His depth of research and keen observations about General George S. Patton, Jr., in this fascinating, well-paced book, breaks new ground in the study of the famous World War II battlefield commander.”

—Brian M. Sobel, author of The Fighting Pattons

“A fascinating and highly informative work that sheds new light on the wartime career of the legendary General George S. Patton. Hymel's book should appeal not only to students of Patton's life, but to anyone with an interest in the Mediterranean and European theaters in World War II. Highly recommended.”

—Joseph Balkoski, author of Omaha Beach: D-Day, June 6, 1944
