“May God have mercy upon my enemies, because I won’t” –George S. Patton

George S. Patton was arguably one of the most controversial military leaders of World War II. A gifted strategist, an uncompromising disciplinarian. A man with weaknesses who did not tolerate weakness in others. Irascible, foul-mouthed, and unpredictable, but unquestionably effective. In short, a man with a complicated legacy. So when “Patton” was released in 1970, in the middle of the Vietnam War, it was up to George C. Scott to bring this complex man to life for a divided audience. With Francis Ford Coppola as a screenwriter and Gen. Omar Bradley (USA, Ret.) consulting, the film became part of George Patton’s myth, and forever made Scott and the rest of the cast part of the American cultural legend that is “Patton.”
