"If you have read 'Killing Kennedy,'" Bill O'Reilly reminds his readers, "you know that Martin Dugard and I are not conspiracy theorists. We write from a factual point of view, with no axes to grind." Thus, on the "afterword" page of "Killing Patton" author and TV commentator O'Reilly seeks to assure those who have just read this most recent volume in the co-authored (with Mr. Dugard) "Killing" series that their findings are simply facts, not hype.

My Take - For years I never believed this was anything but a legitimate accident, until I found out that Stalin wanted John Wayne, who - an ardent anti-communist - assassinated. Although he changed his mind, I began to wonder if Patton’s death really was an accident.
Then I began to read the accounts about how many Stalinist agents, fellow travelers and communists infested every part of the Roosevelt administration, many of whom were in major positions of leadership, something FDR had to be completely aware of since one of them lived in the White House for two years.
It is now my view that Patton was murdered with American approval from the highest levels. Please take the time to order and read Diana West's book, "AmericanBetrayal: The Secret Assault on Our Nation's Character", and "Stalin's Secret Agents: The Subversion of Roosevelt's Government" by M. Stanton Evans and
