Was General Patton Murdered?

Fascinating new book: KILLING PATTON by Bill O'Reilly and Martin Dugard.

Fascinating new book: KILLING PATTON by Bill O’Reilly and Martin Dugard.

I have read plenty of books on the history of World War II, but this is one of the best ones of them all.

Did you know that the Allied generals of World War II, like Generals George S. Patton and Bernard Law Montgomery, were in competition with one another?  That they were trying to outdo one another?  That Stalin and Wild Bill Donovan were both out for themselves and working their own agenda even in the midst of World War II?  This book is chock full of behind-the-scenes intrigues that have left me spellbound!

One of the best of the generals was Patton, credited as rescuing our encircled forces at Bastogne during the Christmas season of 1944 by rolling in with his Third Army.  Unfortunately, Patton also had a way of shooting off his mouth and causing all manner of political problems.  Eisenhower had a hard time getting him to shut up. Montgomery didn’t like him and the feeling was mutual.  Stalin’s NKVD was out to get him.

So was he murdered?

I will say no more, except to recommend this book to lovers of  history everywhere!

One of the outspoken General Patton's quotes.  He had more enemies than just the ones on the battlefield.
