PATTON The Pursuit of Destiny

by | Read by William Dufris

History • 5.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2010

Born in a family of fighting generals and preparing all his life to command troops, George Patton’s career exemplifies leadership through preparedness. Patton strove for professional and physical excellence, always leading his men from the van. His greatest fear was to show lack of bravery; his greatest foible was his lack of self-control. Narrator William Dufris improves this excellent biography with his expressive inflections and attention to every phrase. The author has chosen the most revealing incidents from the general’s life—for example, an affair with his niece—and Dufris reads in harmony with them to create a memorable and colorful human portrait. He also demonstrates his polyglot skill with the names of French, Italian, and German locations and those of the Allied Forces’ military opponents.
