Video - New George S Patton speech! Iran & modern warfare.

General George S. Patton quoted* the following quote: "Pour les vaincre, messieurs, il nous faut de l'audace, encore de l'audace, et toujours de l'audace et la Patrie sera sauvée!" ~ Danton.

Translation:  "To defeat them, gentlemen, we need audacity, more audacity and always audacity and the Homeland will be saved!"

*About the plan to do an end-round on the way from Palermo to Messina, by sending a battalion into the sea, behind German lines, to the town of Brolo. Speaking to Brigadier General Lucian Truscott [with Omar Bradley present] about not being too conservative, Patton misquotes Fredrick the Great [should have been Georges Danton], with):
"L'audace, l'audace, toujours l'audace!" — ("Audacity, audacity, always audacity!")
