Patton and His Third Army is the first-hand account of Patton's legendary, lightning-fast armored-drive routing of Wehrmacht forces across France and beyond following the Allied Invasion of Europe. Author Brenton Wallace served as an assistant chief of Patton's staff, and his narrative covers the full campaign, from the Third Army's preparations in Britain, to its first engagements with the enemy, through to the major battles countering the German offensives, liberating Paris and breaking across the Moselle into the Nazi heartland. It is the story of a master tactician, a superior military strategist who prided himself on surviving his vexing rival, the brilliant Erwin Rommel.

Patton and His Third Army is a frank account of the much mythologized general and includes many of his immortal maxims such as, "There are only three principles of warfare: Audacity, Audacity, AUDACITY!" It is essential reading for anyone interested in the European Theater of combat in World War 2, and finding out more about this remarkable figure who Eisenhower said was "born to be a soldier."
