Patton on keeping the enemy running

February 25, 2013


“To hell with taking three days to regroup! We will regroup on the run. Let the women and children consolidate our gains. When we get the enemy on the run, we must keep him on the run. We must run faster than he does! We’ll not need food when we are winning! We will eat the enemy.”


Alan Axelrod, Patton on Leadership: Strategic Lessons for Corporate Warfare (Paramus, N.J.: Prentince Hall Press, 1999), 133.
