"Killing Patton: The Strange Death of World War II's Most Audacious General, a lively, provocative account of the death of General George S. Patton and the important events in the final year of the Allied victory in Europe, which Patton's brilliant generalship of the American Third Army did so much to secure.
The fourth book in the bestselling Killing series is rich in fascinating details, and riveting battle scenes. The authors have written vivid descriptions of a compelling cast of characters, major historical figures such as Eisenhower, Churchill, Roosevelt, Stalin, Hitler, and others, as well as more obscure players in the great drama of the Second World War and the life and death of Patton.
O'Reilly and Dugard express doubts about the official explanation for Patton's demise from injuries he suffered in an automobile accident. They surmise that the General's outspokenness about his controversial views on postwar security, particularly his animosity toward the Soviets, our erstwhile allies, might have made him a target for assassination. They cast a suspicious eye toward various potential culprits from Josef Stalin to wartime espionage czar "Wild Bill" Donovan and a colorful OSS operative, Douglas Bazata, who claimed later in life to have murdered Patton." ~ Senator John McCain.
