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, 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.

    So much information. I couldn't put this book down. I've read other books from the killing series, this one is my favorite. If you like learning about WWII you will love this book!

    This dime store pop history reads as he talks -- smug, brusque & rude. Very little new material here when it cried for more. The book wanders off topic for several wasted chapters and left me disappointed. Based on this, I wouldn't buy another O'Reilly book.

    Great read and history lesson. 1/2 the people won't like him but war is war. You fight to win not to be nice.
  • Well done

    I couldn't put down this enjoyable and easy to read account of the conclusion of World War II. While the title suggests a singular focus on the colorful and beloved George S. Patton, the authors provide interesting context on every major figure in the war effort. Am I the only one that envisions George C. Scott's face when I read about Patton?

    Bill O'Reilly and Martin Dugard do it again, tell a great story with facts as a thriller. Very hard to put this one down. I've considered myself well versed in history and about General Patton, but this book opened my eyes. Every American needs to read this book, our schools do not teach history anymore so it's up to us to know the facts.
