General George S. Patton is one of the most famous American military leaders of all-time, with an outsized personality and even-bigger reputation. But what really drove his World War II successful campaigns? Host Joe Craig sits down with Stephen L. Moore, the author of the just-released book Patton’s Payback: The Battle of El Guettar and General Patton’s Rise to Glory to discuss the man, the conditions he faced in North Africa in the early days of the war, and how he motivated his men to fight and find victory.
