Bill O'Reilly from Fox News tv has recently published a book on the death of General Patton and has made a very good case that General Patton was murdered 70 years ago. Hopefully, the US government will search their files for the missing papers on the death. The book attempts to paint a broad background landscape of political and military events. For those who have not read much about World War II and the leaders and armies involved it is a good general introduction. The motive for the murder of Patton was that Patton was years ahead of others in realizing the military and political reality. Patton's outspoken statements and warnings upset the apple cart. Under the command of lesser generals and politicians due to his own personal shortcomings, Patton was repeatedly ordered to keep quiet. Fortunately, for us he did not but he paid with his life.
