In an exclusive interview with Guns & Patriots, the author talked about his new book “Patton: Blood, guts and prayer,” which examines the general’s leadership, warrior ethos and lifetime of Christian devotion.
“For this guy, faith was part of his being,” said Michael Keane, a fellow of national security at the Los Angeles-based Pacific Council on International Policy.

“He was raised reading the bible, praying every day,” he said.
“His faith in God and his faith in himself became this core,” he said.
