George Smith Patton III



"No bastard ever won a war by dying for his country. He won by making the other poor dumb bastard die for his country."

Recently, I have been reading up on infamous general, George S Patton (a fellow dyslexic). Patton's maverick style and over the top personality has been the topic of multiple biographies and one award winning film. The 1970 film, Patton staring George C Scott, portrays the accomplishments of the career military man from 1942-1945.

Note the Ivory handled six shooter.
