A fitting sequel
6 April 2006 | by (Exmore, VA, USA) – See all my reviews

This film, a made-for-TV sequel to the movie "Patton", is exceptionally well done. With essentially the same cast as the film, it follows the career of General George S. Patton from victory in Europe to his untimely death following an automobile accident in Bavaria. While the movie "Patton" portrays the brusque, sometimes profane side of General Patton, this sequel shows his softer side. He was a brilliant strategist and tactician but also felt deeply the role and demands of the common soldier, with whom he desired to be buried. The script for this film was derived from the book by Ladislav Farrago, author of the excellent biography "Patton". Farrago was a WWII OSS agent who experienced the rigors of war firsthand. At the time he wrote "The last days..." and writing about Patton's painful last days in the hospital, he was himself dying of cancer. His wife and son finished the work. This film is an important footnote to history and should be recorded on DVD.
