THE LAST DAYS OF PATTON
2011, Pen & Sword, , 9781594161384,336pp, illustrations, New in card cover, , CARD In December, 1945 General George S. Patton died from injuries sustained in an automobile accident in Germany. His death sent shock waves through the American and Russian commands and it seemed plausible that America’s greatest general may have been a victim of foul play. In the seven months following the German surrender, Patton had openly and provocatively criticized the Soviet Union and appeared to have transformed from a staunch anti-Nazi. The author investigates the possibility of a conspiracy to murder Patton. (Book ref. 36466-01) £17.24
