Odd Reading, Great Book
I've had this book for a long time but couldn't get the time to read to read it. I was pleased to find the audio version.
I really liked this book because it gives a lot of interesting detail but not too much. I read Truman and really don't like biographies that start out 4 generations before the main character is born. This book is very well balanced in detail and treatment of Patton.
The reader has a very odd, sometimes very annoying inflection. You have to really listen because sentences are oddly joined by the reader.
Highly recommend but I'll watch for this reader in the future.

History and a Hit Piece
At times the book seemed to serve the purpose to tell the story of Patton, and at others it seemed to have more of a purpose to undermine Patton and his character and find fault his tactics and approach to situations. I did enjoy the historical aspects, but it seemed as though the author was out to subtly discredit the man.
