Killing Patton

In August we will be reading Killing Patton By Bill O'Reilly.
We will meet at the home of Sandy Montgomery. The story begins in October 1944, when many believed the Allies had all but won the war in Europe. Killing Patton follows a remarkable cast of characters on the battlefield and off, including Joseph Stalin, Adolf Hitler, Churchill, and Franklin D. Roosevelt. The truth was Germany was not ready to accept defeat and some of the bloodiest battles of the war lay ahead, battles in which George Patton would play a crucial role. At the time of his death Patton had become known around the world as both an exalted commander with a hard-charging personality and a controversial hero, relieved of his duties by General Eisenhower in part because of his brusque manner. For almost seventy years, there has been suspicion that his death was not an accident. The facts surrounding the death of Patton are disturbing and O’Reilly reveals the true man, and the many powerful people who wanted him dead.
We meet on the 3rd Monday of each month at 10:00.
