Author Talk by Kevin Hymel. Patton’s War

December 10 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

$10 – $20

George S. Patton Jr. lived an exciting life in war and peace, but he is best remembered for his World War II battlefield exploits.  Patton’s War: An American General’s Combat Leadership: November 1942–July 1944, the first of three volumes, follows the general from the beaches of Morocco to the fields of France, right before the birth of Third Army on the continent. In highly engaging fashion, Kevin Hymel uncovers new facts and challenges long held beliefs about the mercurial Patton, not only examining his relationships with his superiors and fellow generals and colonels, but also with the soldiers of all ranks whom he led. Using new sources unavailable to previous historians and through extensive research of soldiers’ memoirs and interviews, Hymel adds a new dimension to the telling of Patton’s WWII story.

Kevin M. Hymel has served as a historian and writer for the U.S. Army and U.S. Air Force for the last fifteen years and is a historian/ tour guide for Stephen Ambrose Historical Tours, where he leads the “In Patton’s Footsteps” tour. He is also a regular contributor to WWII History and WWII Quarterly, and the author of three books, including Patton’s Photographs: War as He Saw It. He lives in Arlington, Virginia.
