Boots and Saddles
A Call to GloryLarge Print - 2014
At thirty-two, Second Lieutenant George Patton is a West Point graduate mired in a dead-end career. He is a cavalry officer and Saber Master, a nineteenth-century warrior facing the reality of a twentieth-century military that seemingly has no place for him. Prospects for the glorious career he desires seem lost. Then the United States Cavalry is called to one last fight. In the spring of 1916, political instability in Mexico crosses the border when Pancho Villa raids Columbus, New Mexico. President Wilson orders a Punitive Expedition to bring the outlaw revolutionary to justice. As General Pershing mounts an aggressive campaign, Patton confronts the reality of twentieth-century warfare and forms a bond that leaves an imprint on American military history.
