“[Patton’s Pawns] draws some long-overdue attention to the considerable fighting prowess of the 94th. Second, it makes the salient point that the 1945 campaign to conquer Nazi Germany was no walkover. Instead, it was a bloody, costly, demoralizing struggle. By and large, the Germans did not capitulate. They fought very hard, and Le Tissier illustrates this quite well.”—Journal of Military History
"This new and exceedingly detailed divisional history . . . is a well-written narrative with excellent, appropriate maps, drawings, and photographs."
— Russel A. Hart, author of Clash of Arms: How the Allies Won in Normandy
“Le Tissier does a great job building an immediate bond between these hard-fighting soldiers of the 94th and the reader. . . . Adding to his superior writing are fantastic maps, sketches, and photos interspaced through the book. . . . Patton’s Pawns is a worthy read of any military historian or for those interested in following one of the many infantry divisions fighting across Europe during World War II.”—On Point
