General George Patton, one of the U.S. Army's leading ground-combat commanders, kept a detailed and candid diary of his World War II experiences, as well as extensive photographic albums documenting the war. This photograph from 1945 shows him (pictured in the front row, with helmet, second from left) as commander of the U.S. Third Army, along with General Omar Bradley, commander of the U.S. 12th Army Group (in the front row, center).
