Item description for PATTON'S LAST BATTLE (Whiting, Charles, West Wall Series, V. 8.) by Charles Whiting...
It was to be the last year in the life of General George Patton. It would commence with the great victory of the Battle of the Bulge. It would end in dismissal, despair and finally death.
For despite his victory at Bastogne and his tremendous drive through Southern Germany, his boss Eisenhower, would cruelly relieve him of his post as Governor of Bavaria, take away his beloved Third Army and finally relegate him to the command of the 15th US Army, which existed on paper only.
This is the record of Patton's last year until he died, not, ironically, on the battlefield, but peacefully in bed.

Patton's last battle Nov 22, 2004
Well Mr Whiting , I sure as hell can guess you did'nt like ''Georgie'' there was scarcely a page went by when when you didn't refer to GSP jnr's sqeaky voice. I could'nt help but think through the book you were attacking his personality . Not one for Patton lovers.
