Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

In their previous number one bestsellers, Bill O'Reilly and Martin Dugard retraced the final days of Abraham Lincoln, John F. Kennedy, and Jesus; now they probe the mysterious death of George S. Patton, a U.S. general who did not long survive a World War he helped win. Killing Patton follows the vituperative commander from childhood through WWII battlefield triumphs to controversies and an end of the war demotion caused by his outspoken views about denazification and the Soviet Union. Then just months after the global conflict ended, Patton died in a hospital, thirteen days after a staff car accident in Germany. Almost from the moment of his demise, rumors of an assassination conspiracy proliferated. In this new headline-grabber, O'Reilly and Dugard wring out the truth.
