Short Desription

Through the force of his personality and the headline-grabbing advance of his U.S. Third Army, General George S. Patton has eclipsed the other six men who, like him, led field armies in the great Allied campaign to liberate northwest Europe in 1944-45. Certain to rank among the classics of World War II history like Eisenhower''s Lieutenants by Russell Weigley, Patton''s Peers presents a masterful reassessment of the eleven-month struggle from D-Day to Germany''s surrender, shedding long overdue light on the contributions of these forgotten Allied field army commanders.

Seasoned military historian John A. English unearths the vital roles played by these six generals. As the leader of an army of several hundred thousand troops, each had to plan operations days and weeks in advance, coordinate air support and assess intelligence, give orders to corps commanders, manage a staff of sometimes difficult subordinates, and deal with superiors like Eisenhower, Bradley, and Montgomery. Some performed less ably than the rest while others rivalled Patton in their achievements. All deserve to be lifted from Patton''s shadow.
