General George Patton Old Blood and Guts by Alden Hatch


General George Patton Old Blood and Guts by Alden Hatch

He remained firmly in the centre of the action and at the centre of controversy. That's what made General George S. Patton, America's most colourful military leader and an endlessly fascinating subject. He's as dynamic on the page as he was in life in this lively, accessible biography, chronicling Patton from his early days to his triumphant march into Germany in World War II. With his unique personality and fearlessness, Patton is a hero who will keep kids turning the pages to find out more. Because of a crippling disease, Alden Hatch was primarily home educated. He began his career writing fiction for pulp magazines, usually published under a pseudonym and went on to write two novels before embarking on a career as a historian and biographer.
