While General George S. Patton Jr. remains an iconic figure seventy years afterhis death, few fully appreciate him as a strategic thinker. Indeed, hisflamboyant personality often obscures the fact that he was a lifelong studentof the military arts, a true strategic visionary, and a unique figure in Americanmilitary history. This short volume introduces readers to a more complete andnuanced Patton. By tracing his intellectual development and connecting hisviews on strategic thought and history to the issues of the present day, thisbook offers a bold, fresh view on the famous general.

Linking Patton's success as a warfighter to his efforts as a thinker, this bookhopes to kindle debate on managing human capital within the military. Mostsurely the book will demonstrate that-like Patton- the seeds of militarysuccess can be planted throughout a lifetime of formal and self-directed studyof the military arts.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Daniel does well to continuously link Patton's writing to contemporary relevancy, particularly in how the US military continues to integrate increased technological sophistication into its force structures, and the modern struggle of ensuring that officers maintain a theoretical and critical understanding of strategic affairs. This was Patton's strength, his ability to identify key strategic trends and then engage the subject with critical analysis. Patton's writings demonstrate the importance of military history, technological knowledge, and leadership during war and peace. This volume and the writings of George S. Patton are worthy of study by anyone interested in strategic studies and the US military." - Journal of Military and Strategic Studies

"21st Century Patton, a volume in the Naval Institute series 21st Century Foundations, is a valuable read for the insights it offers on the analytic processes employed by a creative military thinker, and ought to be required reading for policy makers and military commanders." - The Strategy Page
