George S. Patton Jr. remains one of the most storied commanders of World War II. Patton s spectacularly successful drive across France in Augus September 1944 as commander of the US Third Army was perhaps his greatest campaign. Many biographers have attributed Patton? achievements almost exclusively to his masterful employment of armor and to an innate sixth sense that enabled him to anticipate the moves of his opponents.Drawing heavily on declassified ULTRA intelligence reports, the records of XIX Tactical Air Command, and postwar interrogations of German commanders, Maj Bradford J. Shwedo? XIX Tactical Air Command and ULTRA: Patton? Force Enhancers in the 1944 Campaign in France sheds new light on Patton? generalship and suggests that Patton? penchant for risk and audacity may have been less the product of a sixth sense than of his confidence inULTRA and tactical airpower. Timely and highly accurate ULTRA intelligence afforded Patton knowledge of Germancapabilities and enabled him to shape his operations to exploit mounting German weakness.
