Rescuing General Patton

by Curtis Stephen Burdick

Historical fiction

LoveReading Expert Review of Rescuing General Patton

Highly entertaining for those who are familiar with General Patton, or those who, like myself, were introduced to him for the first time here.

‘Rescuing General Patton’ by Curtis Stephen Burdick is a historical fiction with mystery at it’s heart. As stated in the prologue, General George S. Patton, renowned for his strategy during the course of the second world war, is reassigned without post, a cover-up for other action, but whether it is for an undercover command or something else? This plot reveals everything. I liked the concept of the novel, Akin in nature but not necessarily in topic to 'A Room Made of Leaves' by Kate Grenville, this book takes a historical figure and embellishes history in order to create an enticing and engrossing read with a believable feel. At 197 pages, I enjoyed this book in a single sitting, immersed in the storyline and eager to learn whether General Patton would be successfully rescued. I feel ‘Rescuing General Patton’ would appeal to historical fiction fans broadly, and fans of WW2 fiction specifically. A very well-written and well researched book, as you need to know your history to adapt it in this way, I found that this book was an engrossing read full of twists, thrills, tension and action. Highly entertaining for those who are familiar with General Patton, or those who, like myself, were introduced to him for the first time here.

Rescuing General Patton Synopsis

General George S. Patton, the most successful combat commander in U.S. history, is relieved of his command in Sicily to cover-up that his jeep had been ambushed at the front and he had assumed the identity of a dead colonel before being captured by the Germans. An Army Ranger officer, on the verge of being court-martialed, leads WWII’s most daring, bloody, top-secret rescue mission ever undertaken as a suspicious Gestapo interrogator learns the truth.
