The Last Days of Patton by Ladislas Farago
9780070199408 The end of WW II found him at the height of his glory, his tanks poised for more of the lightning thrusts that made him a legend. A year later America's greatest military hero was gone...his victories downplayed by the top brass, his life closed in an accident that is still a subject of controversy today. Ladislas Farago is Patton's supreme biographer. He wrote the classic on which George C. Scott based his film portrayal.
