Born on November 11, 1885, in San Gabriel, California, George S. Patton is considered as one of the most significant generals in the history of US. George was the first ever officer to be assigned in the World War I Tank Corps. During the Second World War, George assisted the Allies to invade Sicily and also played a key role in the German liberation. George S. Patton quotes had been an inspiration to not only the armed men all over the world but to the civilians as well.
"Lead me, follow me, or get out of my way."
"Never tell people how to do things. Tell them what to do and they will surprise you with their ingenuity."
"Accept the challenges so that you can feel the exhilaration of victory"
"Success is how high you bounce when you hit bottom."
George died at a hospital in Heidelberg in 1945 after breaking his neck near Mannheim in a car crash. Two years later, War as I Knew It, his memoir was published. General George S. Patton’s character was explored in the film Patton which was released in 1970. The film portrayed his characteristic traits that ranged from being sentimental to extremely ruthless.
