Abstract:

This is the most epic book yet in the multimillion-selling series. Readers around the world have been enthralled by Bill O'Reilly and historian Martin Dugard's Killing Lincoln, Killing Kennedy, and Killing Jesus -- riveting works of nonfiction that journey into the heart of the most famous murders in history. Now Bill O'Reilly, anchor of The O'Reilly Factor, recounts the dramatic final months of World War II in Europe, and General George S. Patton Jr.'s invaluable contributions to the Allied victory before his mysterious death in a car collision in December 1945, days before he was to return to the United States. Beginning in October 1944, when many believed the Allies had all but won the war in Europe, Killing Patton follows a remarkable cast of characters on the battlefield and off, including Joseph Stalin, Adolf Hitler, Winston Churchill, and Franklin Delano Roosevelt. The truth was that Germany was not ready to accept defeat and some of the bloodiest battles of the war lay ahead, battles in which George Patton and his Third Army would play a crucial role. At the time of his death, Patton had become known around the world as both an exalted commander with a hard-charging personality and a controversial hero, relieved of his duties by General Dwight Eisenhower in part because of his brusque manner and outspoken nature. For almost seventy years, there has been a suspicion that his death was not an accident -- and may very well have been an act of assassination. In Killing Patton, O Reilly and do Dugard reveal the true man and the many powerful people who wanted him dead. The facts surrounding the death of Patton are disturbing to say the least. But they should be known by everyone. - Jacket flap.
