George Smith Patton, Jr. (November 11, 1885 � December 21, 1945) was a leading U.S. Army general in World War II. In his 36-year Army career, he was an advocate of armored warfare and commanded major units of North Africa, Sicily, and the European Theater of Operations.

Many have viewed Patton as a pure and ferocious warrior, known by the nickname "Old Blood and Guts", a name given to him after a reporter misquoted his statement that it takes blood and brains to win a war.

But history has left the image of a brilliant military leader whose record was also marred by insubordination and some periods of apparent instability.

He once said, "Lead me, follow me, or get the hell out of my way."
