Grab Them by the Nose and Kick Them in the Pants : Patton on Combined Arms Operational Maneuver
General George S. Patton combined his understanding of maneuver warfare (gained from cavalry) and the firepower of modern combined arms to revolutionize American warfare in World War II. Patton called it "Grab them by the nose and kick them in the pants." This paper examines Patton's close coordination between Third Army and XIX Tactical Air Command as he races across Europe. Patton's combined arms operational maneuver has heavily influenced American military doctrine as demonstrated by the "Shock and Awe" campaign in Operation Iraqi Freedom.
