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.

    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

    This is a great book. Well researched and thought out. Lots of information about WWII which I enjoyed.

    I enjoyed the book immensely. The writings, the interviews, and the Hollywood treatment could't begin to provide the narrative presented here. The only area detracting from my enjoyment was the "conspiracy" element. It was certainly spun that way. I understand the repeated close calls would have led anyone to question why. O'Reilly took it several steps beyond that. Was it a conspiracy or simply not researched deeply enough?
  • Amazing!

    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.
