This week on History Happy Hour: Last year we welcomed Kevin Hymel to talk about the first volume of his new Patton biography. Now we welcome him back to talk about the second volume, Patton's War: An American General's Combat Leadership, Volume 2: August–December 1944.
We'll be covering the period starting when Patton took command of the 3rd Army. It includes his race against France, the closing of the Falaise pocket, and the successful effort to relieve Bastogne during the Battle of the Bulge.
A deep dive into the most incredible six months of Patton’s career – Sunday at 4PM Eastern on History Happy Hour, where history is always on tap.
