This is a 16 slide, highly animated, power point presentations on The United States & WW II - Military Leaders - George Patton. Each of the presentation slides are editable so you can change it to fit your individual needs.
Swiftly advancing through the ranks to colonel in WW I, Patton was given command of the 1st Provisional Tank Brigade in August 1918. Fighting as part of the 1st US Army, he was wounded in the leg at the Battle of St. Mihiel that September.
Recovering, he took part in the Meuse-Argonne Offensive for which he was awarded the Distinguished Service Cross and Distinguished Service Medal, as well as a battlefield promotion to colonel. With the end of the war, he reverted to his peacetime rank of captain and was assigned to WDC.
Seeking to inspire his men, Patton developed a flashy image and routinely wore a highly polished helmet, cavalry pants and boots, and a pair of ivory-handled pistols. Traveling in a vehicle featuring oversize rank insignias and sirens, his speeches were frequently laced with profanity and espoused the utmost confidence in his men. While his behavior was popular with his troops, Patton was prone to indiscreet remarks which often stressed Eisenhower, which caused tension among the Allies.
With the beginning of the Battle of the Bulge on December 16, Patton began shifting his advance towards the threatened parts of the Allied line. In perhaps his greatest achievement of the conflict, he was able to quickly turn Third Army north and relieve the besieged 101st Airborne Division at Bastogne.
