Description

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, iconic 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.

    What a great book! How concurrent is the story of Patton as a military genius and a establishment disruptor to that of US President 45. Fearing Patton’s ability to act and accomplish, the WW II military political infrastructure defaulted to equivocation and political correctness, thus neutering one of the great American heroes. The swamp/media treatment of Prez 45 is strikingly similar. But what could one expect from the people Patton would would describe as cowards.

    I’ve read 5 of O’Riley’s books now. They are well written and hard to put down. I’ve learned a lot about our history, some of it is disgusting, all of it is fascinating. I recommend all his books.

    The content and rhythm of the book is outstanding...was surprised that Mr. O’Reilly mispronounces so many names and/or words within the text.

    Excellent book but large parts of book were duplicated in Hitlers Last Days. Very disappointing, to say the least

    All of the O’Reilly Dugard books are interesting and least expected entertaining. Well done—I served at the 130th Station Hospital in then West Germany and am familiar with the small room Patton was in after the vehicle accident.

    I liked the Patton motion picture. Your book, Killing Patton was a very good read. Many very interesting and unknown stories of the General. A very easy read. Hard to put down once you start. This book gave Patton’s life a whole lot more meaning. Thank you, J.R. Sorensen
