A good piece, neatly stitched into the modern context. I wonder whether the young George Patton ever encountered Mangin.

It's an interesting point SG; it made me think that just as Mangin was to Petain so Patton was to Bradley.

Very well written. Thanks for sharing.

ps good advice from the author's Dad.

I wish my dad would have given me that kind of advice...

An excellent article that also reminds us of some of the talent that Lanrezac had in 5e armée.

According to Andrew Roberts, Mangin and Patton shared a trait : despite their reputation as rough hewn and harsh warriors, both men in private exhibited great courtesy and sensitivity of manner.
