Following the close of World War II, General George S. Patton is seriously injured in a car accident and not expected to survive. "The Last Days of Patton" tells the story of these last few months of the General's life and the Army Medical Corps efforts to save him. Intermixed with flashbacks, the film also shows Patton's earlier career as a fledging tank commander during the First World War.

Did You Know?
The general celebrates his birthday, and it looks like the next day he has his accident. This is evidenced by the soldiers in the truck singing the tune that was played at the party, "Chicory Chick". General Patton's birthday was on November 11th, and the accident happened on December 8th. It couldn't have happened the way it was depicted in the movie. See more
