Published in 2012
The Ghost in General Patton’s Third Army is a poignant memoir that documents Eugene G. Schulz’s army training and combat adventures in Europe during World War II. It describes Schulz’s daily duties and life with the XX Corps Headquarters during the three years that he served with this unit. The XX Corps perfected the surprise tactics against the enemy that earned it the title of “Ghost Corps” when it confounded the German High Command by showing up where it was least expected. While serving in Germany, Schulz was an eyewitness to the first Nazi concentration camp that was discovered by American troops, the horrors of which are told in Schulz’s emotional story.
