Title -  United States Army General George S. Patton


Description -  George Smith Patton Jr. (November 11, 1885 – December 21, 1945) was a general in the United States Army who commanded the Seventh United States Army in the Mediterranean theater of World War II and the United States Army Central in France and Germany after the Allied invasion of Normandy in June 1944.  Patton's colorful image, hard-driving personality and success as a commander were at times overshadowed by his controversial public statements.  His philosophy of leading from the front, and his ability to inspire troops with attention-getting, vulgarity-ridden speeches, such as his famous address to the Third Army, was met favorably by his troops, but much less so by a sharply divided Allied high command.  His emphasis on rapid and aggressive offensive action nonetheless proved effective, and he was regarded highly by his opponents in the German High Command as well.
