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 Wilcox, author of Black Aces High and Wings of Fury, has spent more than ten years investigating these mysteries, and in Target: Patton he has written an electrifying account of the shocking circumstances--long hidden from the public--surrounding the death of America's most famous general. In Target: Patton, you'll discover:
* The extraordinary war hero, artist, and mercenary who said he was ordered by U.S. intelligence to assassinate Patton
* The OSS agent who knew Patton was in danger and tried to save him
* New evidence from recently declassified documents revealing doubts about the official version of Patton's death
* The final stories of those involved in the accident, including those who were thought to have disappeared--until now
"Target: Patton is a terrific book investigating the mysterious death of one of America's greatest military heroes: General George S. Patton, Jr. Reporter Robert Wilcox takes the reader into the mystery: from Patton's suspicious car crash in Occupied Germany in 1945 to his unexpected death two weeks later, bringing to light new evidence and raising serious questions, all of which makes for a fascinating read."
