This is an unusual commentary as it focuses wholly on George Patton, so if your looking to get some knowledge or insight about the filming of Patton you're out of luck.

That doesn't make it a bad commentary however, the commentator knows his stuff and has a good talking voice. He expands on certain events depicted in the film and reveals where they have taken liberties with the source material.

Naturally, he also talks about segments of his life not shown in the film, like his eventual death and how it came about. All quite interesting.

One complaint I do have is that it ends rather abruptly without him signing out or anything about 1.5 hour in. And before that there was another instance where he just stopped talking for quite a while, I thought it was over then but skipped forward a chapter or two and then he was talking again, so that's something to keep in mind.
