PATTON by Alan Axelrod (unabridged) is presented by Blackstone Audio and comes with what is perhaps the best audiobook app available (see FEATURES, below).

“Axelrod has captured Patton’s checkered legacy in a balanced biography.” (Publishers Weekly)

George S. Patton was a general who achieved greatness in his field by contradicting his own nature. From Patton’s boyhood battling dyslexia and becoming an avid reader to his leadership strategies that modernized the U.S. Army, this book delivers a fascinating account of Patton’s life and legacy.

Self-contained, this audiobook app is perfect for your commute, on a trip, or while relaxing. Based on a library-quality recording, this app was built especially for your iPhone and iPod Touch. No unreadable text, no endless scrolling on a tiny screen. The audio is of higher-than-normal quality, making for a great listening experience that will not tire your ears or grate on your nerves.

NOTICE: This app includes the exact same 5-star recording offered elsewhere at much higher prices. It was professionally recorded by Blackstone Audio’s narrator, Brian Emerson. You are not buying yet another amateur or volunteer narration. No clicks, background noises, throat clearing, mispronunciations, tinny voices or monotones will be found here.

“[O]ffers new and interesting insight….[Brian Emerson] inhabits Patton’s psyche, capturing the General’s insecurity, intensity, and brilliance.” (AudioFile)

RATING: Suitable for adults who enjoy military histories or who are fans of the Great Generals Series.

George S. Patton was a general who achieved greatness in his field by contradicting his own nature. A cavalryman steeped in romantic military tradition, he nevertheless pulled a reluctant American military into the most advanced realms of highly mobile armored warfare. An autocratic snob, Patton created unparalleled rapport and loyalty with the lowliest private in his command. An outspoken racist, he led the only racially integrated U.S. military unit in World War II. A profoundly insecure individual, he made his Third Army the most self-confident and consistently victorious fighting force in the European theater. An exuberantly profane man, he prayed daily and believed God had destined him for military greatness.

Alan Axelrod delivers a fascinating account of Patton’s extraordinary life and legacy.
