Description: As the public affairs officer for George S. Patton Jr. and his Third U.S. Army, Lt. Col. James F. Quirk was in a unique position to observe the general and his army in their rough and tumble roll across France and into Germany. His observations were recorded in a series of remarkable letters which form the basis for the narrative.

Following World War II, after a short stint in civilian work, Colonel Quirk was recalled to active duty to work for Gen.

Matthew Ridgway during some of the darkest days of the Korean War. Following the war, Quirk went on to "combat" in the corporate world after being tapped to be the founding publisher of TV Guide. The Quirk circle of life made a full turn as James's only son Rory went to Vietnam as an infantry officer.
