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, iconic 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.

    Patton was the greatest wartime General of all time. This book really gives the reader terrific insight into the man, his understanding of warfare and the enemy. It’s too bad his bosses didn’t let him do what needed to be done; it would be a very different and safer world today if they had let him win the war(s). Great read, very well written. -Brad

    Very good reading. Could not put it down. I love history but didn’t realize how many things I didn’t know about the intrigue around this man. He was truly a great American that was forthright when others let him take the heat for things of their doing.

    Very sad to recall the level of betrayal that followed WW2 Patton nor Kennedy deserved their fate. Even though I was taught to loath JFK. For the Bay of Pigs fiasco that kept Cagstro fiDel in Cuba

    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.
  • Fascinating

    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.
