Axelrod offers new and interesting insight into General George S. Patton, a figure often portrayed as larger than life. Axelrod focuses upon the emotional sides of Patton, drawing on both well-known and lesser-known events that led the General to greatness, and to personal destruction. Brian Emerson’s reading mirrors the ebbs and flows that characterized Patton’s life. At times, Emerson’s style is understated, yet at other moments he sounds as though he inhabits Patton’s psyche, capturing the General’s insecurity, intensity, and brilliance. For example, readers who remember Patton’s infamous “slap” may be surprised to learn that there were, in fact, two slaps, and that they took an enormous personal toll on the General.
