Encore Episode: George Patton
Guests: Kevin Hymel
Sunday, October 23, 2022
This Week on History Happy Hour: General George S. Patton. The debate still rages: Was he a brilliant combat commander or the most over-rated general of the war? A legendary leader or a legend in his own mind? Whatever you think of Patton, there is no getting around the fact that he is one of most-chronicled figures of World War II.
In this encore episode, Chris and Rick talk with historian Kevin Hymel, author of "Patton’s War: An American General’s Combat Leadership, Volume 1." His book seeks to add a new dimension to Patton’s story by looking at the general through the eyes of the soldiers who fought with him.
Find out what is left to discover about the general known as “Old Blood and Guts.” This Sunday at 4PM ET on History Happy Hour, the spot where history is always on tap.
