Nicknamed Bandito, with an outlandish character to match, George S. Patton was an officer and general recognized for his notable leadership prowess during WWII. A master of all he attended, Patton designed the U.S. Cavalry's very last sword, the 'Patton Saber', led the army's first motorized vehicle attack, became the first officer of the brand new U.S. Tank Corps, commanded armies in North Africa and parts of Sicily, along with being a team member on the Olympic pentathlon team! Described as the army's best general by a German field marshall, Cockpit USA recreated the 3 Star General Sheepskin B-3 in which Patton was photographed during the war, making it a jacket representative of a man, a period and sheer guts and bravery.
