Episode 49- Patton's Pray with Author Alex Kershaw Ernie Pyle WWII Museum Podcast

    • History

In this episode, I spoke with author Alex Kershaw regarding his book "Patton's Prayer: A True Story of Courage, Faith, and Victory In World War II".  

General George Patton needed a miracle. In December 1944, the Allies found themselves stuck. Rain had plagued the troops daily since September, turning roads into rivers of muck, slowing trucks and tanks to a crawl. A thick ceiling of clouds had grounded American warplanes, allowing the Germans to reinforce. The sprint to Berlin had become a muddy, bloody stalemate, costing thousands of American lives.

Kershaw is the Resident Historian for Friends of the National WWII Memorial. 

The book will be out on May 21, 2024.
