Patton pistol


General George S. PattonHe was larger than life, a flamboyant, charismatic and controversial personality.  Throughout his military career, General George S. Patton, Jr. dared great deeds, and inspired the troops serving under his command to achieve far beyond even their own expectations.  He was the quintessential warrior, patriot, and a brilliant military scholar.  His speeches were legendary and often inspired the troops who served under his command.  In the words of his biographer, George S. Patton, Jr. had "a genius for war."

America Remembers is proud to offer a tribute to the accomplishments and indomitable spirit of this outstanding American leader.  Here is a working Colt .45 ACP pistol, with the solid, hand-filling heft that veterans will remember.  The concept and design of the Tribute has been officially authorized by the Family of George S. Patton, Jr.

Depicted on the right side of the slide is a scene from the Battle of the Bulge, featuring tanks and troops moving through the snow toward Bastogne.  There is also a depiction of General Patton, standing in his Jeep, addressing his troops.  At the rear of the slide, on both sides, are the stars of the Lieutenant General and General ranks.
