George S. Patton, Jr. wrote this seminal work on the art of swordsmanship for cavalry officers while he was a young officer assigned as a student and fencing instructor at the Mounted Service School in Fort Riley, Kansas. Saber Exercise 1914 was published by the United States War Department in 1914. This transcription is based on an original copy archived at the U.S. Army Heritage and Education Center, Carlisle, Pennsylvania, Ridgway Hall. All original illustrations and graphs are included and enhanced for image quality. The title has been expanded to include the subtitle, "Training Manual in Swordsmanship," to clarify that this is not just a historically significant document, authored by a young George Patton. It is also a detailed study guide in the art of fencing and swordsmanship that is still an important resource for today's enthusiasts.
