Patton and Rommel: Men of War in the Twentieth Century
Dennis E. Showalter
Berkley Caliber, 2005 - Biography & Autobiography - 441 pages
A dual biography of the two World War II generals who changed warfare--and history--forever.
General George S. Patton and General Erwin Rommel: They served their countries through two World Wars. Their temperaments, both on and off the battlefield, were overwhelmingly contrary-but their approach to modern warfare was remarkably similar.
Written by a prominent military historian, Patton and Rommel takes a provocative look at both figures, intertwining the stories of the paths they took and the decisions they made during the course of the Second World War-and compares the lives and careers of two men whose military tactics redirected the course of history.
