Twenty First Century Patton

J. Furman Daniel, III

  • Date: 11/05/2017 2:00 PM

While General George S. Patton Jr. remains an iconic figure seventy years after his death, few fully appreciate him as a strategic thinker. Indeed, his flamboyant personality often obscures the fact that he was a true visionary. This short volume introduces readers to a more complete and nuanced Patton. Linking Patton’s success as a warfighter to his efforts as a thinker, the editor hopes to kindle debate on managing human capital within the military. This collection demonstrates that the seeds of military success can be planted throughout a lifetime of formal and self-directed study of the military arts.
