This piece titled “The Patton of Counterinsurgency” [by Frederick W. Kagan and Kimberly Kagan] from the upcoming Weekly Standard should interest you all.

Unbelievable stuff:

“Great commanders often come in pairs: Eisenhower and Patton, Grant and Sherman, Napoleon and Davout, Marlborough and Eugene, Caesar and Labienus. Generals David Petraeus and Raymond Odierno can now be added to the list.”
