American troops invaded North Africa in November 1942, but did not face serious resistance until the following February, when they finally tangled with Rommel's Afrika Korps--and the Germans gave the inexperienced Americans a nasty drubbing at Kasserine Pass. After this disaster, Gen. George Patton took command and reinvigorated U.S. troops with tough training and new tactics. In late March, at El Guettar in Tunisia, Patton's men defeated the Germans. It was a morale-boosting victory--the first American success versus the Germans and the first of Patton's storied World War II career--and proved to the enemy, the British, and the Americans themselves that the U.S. Army could fight and win.

Patton's First Victory is a compelling and comprehensive account of a battle that has been for too long neglected in the history of America's part in World War II.

Davenport, author of First Over There: The Attack on Cantigny, America's First Battle of World War I, a finalist for the Guggenheim-Lehrman Prize in Military History A fascinating and well researched account of WWII's most celebrated American general, George Patton, and his first great campaign of the war in North Africa. -- Alex Kershaw, author of The Longest Winter and The Bedford Boys
