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.

Took two days to read. Couldn’t put it down.
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.
