Patton: the Pursuit of Destiny by Agostino Von Hassell and Ed Breslin,
Have always been intrigued by Patton’s sense of destiny. Reading this volume enabled me to see the impact of his exposure to the scriptures wherein one encounters the message of a sovereign creator working all things after the counsel of His own will.
This bio also lends tremendous credence to the impact of parents and grandparents on the education of a child without the aid of government schools. The pressures Patton faced as it became apparent he wasn’t a product of the government system only attest to the effectiveness of educational warehousing in cloning.
The book does a great service in explaining the background and motivations behind the slapping incidents.
It is a shame the movie did not follow the biographical material outlined in this volume. Would have been a much better service to the memory of this man!
Patton and Smedley Butler are two terrific leadership role model.
I received this book free from the publisher through the Thomas Nelson bloggers book review program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
