What really happened to General George S. Patton?
He was the most controversial American general in World War IIand also one of the most successful. As a postwar administrator of defeated Germany, he sounded alarm bells about the dangers of Soviet encroachment into Europe. Politically, he was a lightning rodan outspoken conservative who continually embarrassed his superiors with his uncensored, undiplomatic, and unrestrained comments to the press.
In 1945, shortly before he was to fly home to the states as a conquering hero, he was involved in a mysterious car crash that left him partially paralyzed. Two weeks later, just as his doctors were about to send him home to finish his recovery, he was dead.
The army ruled the car crash an accident, his death natural. Yet witness testimony on the crash conflicted, key players in the incident disappeared, official reports vanished, soldiers were ordered to keep silent, and there was no autopsy performed on the body.
Investigative and military reporter Robert K. Wilcox, author of Black Aces High andWings of Fury, has spent more than ten years investigating these mysteries and takes you through the maze of denials, contradictions, and treacheries behind one of the great unsolved mysteries of World War II.
