        There's no way I'm giving Bill a penny. Besides I have a good knowledge of Patton.

          I never understood why Patton's death is such a conspiracy. I know the impact of the crash wasn't very high but Patton had broken his neck when he was younger and injuries never heal 100% which is why Patton broke his neck again.

            Picked up the book at COSTCO and so far excellent read. As to the conspiracy theory that this was a deliberate action to kill Patton does have some merit. Patton was adamantly anti-Russian and one could suppose that Stalin would like him silenced to remove his distrust and disdain of Russia from the American public. I for one have always leaned toward the idea that this was a "hit" orchestrated by someone or some country.

            So far, the book sheds some light on the idea that the Generals including Einsinhower were not the great military leaders that history has portrayed them as. Of course one has to look at this through Patton's eyes.

              A good or excellent read is nice, but I hope you are looking at footnotes, if any, and bibliography for validation of a conspiracy perspective.

                Well one could reference some of the material mentioned here. But, it is still nothing more that a possible conspiracy theory.

                No matter if you consider the conspiracy valid or not, the book is still a very good read.

                  Lack of any references in the link is disappointing.

                          Not everyone is a political operative. Half of the US does not even vote.

                            What I meant was everyone has a point of view stemming from the envoirment they grew up in or learned from...Every writer brings his own political view in their story...Fiction or non-fiction....even if it is not done intentionally......

                              Yeah but operatives are shadier, they are like the black ops of political actors.
