Overview


Readers around the world have thrilled to Killing Lincoln, Killing Kennedy, and Killing Jesus--riveting works of nonfiction that journey into the heart of the most famous murders in history. Now from Bill O’Reilly, anchor of The O’Reilly Factor, comes the most epic book of all in this multimillion-selling series: Killing Patton.

General George S. Patton, Jr. died under mysterious circumstances in the months following the end of World War II. For almost seventy years, there has been suspicion that his death was not an accident--and may very well have been an act of assassination. Killing Patton takes readers inside the final year of the war and recounts the events surrounding Patton’s tragic demise, naming names of the many powerful individuals who wanted him silenced.

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.

    I am a 40 year student on the study of Patton and, having read every piece I can find on the subject, find most every one written with a bias or agenda pro or con of the man. Most of the 'cons' seem to show remarkable insecurity and tend to ignore 'results'. O'Reilly and his coauthor, in my estimation, probably have done the most objective job yet, rotten spots along with the good. I look forward to their next disection. Note: I paid for this book.

    Excellent!

    Excellent! Highly recommended. This history book is gripping. Since my dad was a POW during WWII, I appreciated the inclusion of the facts, battles, and famous figures. The book is written in a short and very readable style for the every one to understand. I stopped several times to research, on the web quickly, some of the famous people. The authors included information that was fascinating for both men and women. Another great book is the novel, The Partisan, by Willian Jarvis. It just won an Indie Medalian Award. The setting is also during WWII and the plot is based on actual events. It has strong male and female characters. Both books deserve A+++++++++

    So Martin Dugard writes a book and Bill O'Reilly takes credit for it. That's pretty low, Bill.

    Very shallow

    There is very little evidence (and weak at that) of a plot to kill Patton in this book. Much of the book is a condensed history of World War Two after D Day and is employed more of a filler to stretch the story. Waste of time unless you want some light reading.

    Good for war review. Not Patton

    Disappointing. Little on the mystery surrounding the details of the death. But good background of war.
