Summary
The Last Days of Patton is the story of General George S. Patton's final battle -- the Allied victory over Germany in the spring of 1945 and the ensuing nine months of his life, with particular attention given to his fatal automobile accident in December. Ladislas Fargo chronicles the postwar adventures and misfortunes that ultimately deprived Patton of the glory and victory he had earned in his career as military strategist, leader, and hero. - Jacket flap
