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.
Review: Killing Patton
Easy read. Lot's of information. Good book to follow the ending days of WWII.
However, the title of the book, "Killing Patton" seems to suggest that Patton was murdered. Also, recent comments made by Bill O'Reilly on TV boldly state that the two authors believe that Patton was murdered, although they can't prove it.
I found no evidence supplied by these authors to support their claim of a conspiracy. Rather, the book details only suggest something 'fishy' might have been underway but no 'smoking' gun was presented.
I believe we will never know what happened for sure.

This is bar none of the best books written on Americas greatest Generals. From his dedication to the army to his faith in God. He foresaw the Russians capturing most of Europe. Trading one murderous leader with another, that being Stalin who killed 23 million. ThWashington insiders including Dwight "Ike" needed Patton silenced. The sheer fact that all documents are missing regarding his death rings true of power hungry fledgling CIA types. Also the inept British commander Montgomery who had lost more troops in his designed missions it was again Ike who never commanded a combat troop played politician. If America did not come to the rescue of Britain they would be speaking German. Montgomery was a fool.
I highly suggest you buy this book. You won't stop listening to its till its end. I stayed up till 3a.m.
Disappointing is the first and best word that comes to mind. For anyone that reads about military history, and WW II in particular, this is a Reader's Digest rehash of History 101.
But on the other hand this book might interest those that slept through history class.
