Product Details


"At once an intriguing portrait of two of the American military’s best-known heroes, Patton’s debut is a poignant tribute to a family’s rich history." —Publishers Weekly

"An attentive consideration of the deep affection between a military legend and his son, of particular interest to those already enthralled by Patton’s larger-than-life shadow." — Kirkus Reviews

“A poignant and often touching record of the interactions amongst successive generations of an Army family devoted to duty and soldiering. Ben Patton appreciates family cultural legacy and documents his own with grace and charm.” –Lewis Sorley, author of A Better War

“Benjamin Patton and Jennifer Scruby have written a gem of a book that is both hugely entertaining and enormously insightful. It is not only the story of the Patton family but evocative portraits of a number of famous and not so famous people associated with the Pattons and the legacies that they have inspired. These people come to life leaving us wishing we knew them. Highly recommended.” –Carlo D’Este, author of Patton: A Genius For War

“Ben Patton creates a beautiful story from the real life of an extraordinary American family.  It is fascinating to read the wartime correspondence between father and son—the father, an iconic war hero, and the restless, passionate son…[He] puts forth the indisputable notion that bloodlines set us on a path, yet chance encounters provide direction and meaning to life. Truly an inspiration, the Patton family story is one of discovery and passion, how one leads to the other, and how, together, they allow us to live life to the fullest.” –Mary T. Scott, Chairman, Board of Governors, National Military Family Association
