Publisher's Summary

The death of General George S. Patton is shrouded in mystery. While officially the result of an unfortunate car accident, the evidence points to a far more malevolent plot: murder. So says investigative and military journalist Robert K. Wilcox in his book Target: Patton: The Plot to Assassinate General George S. Patton.
Written like a WWII spy thriller and meticulously researched, Target: Patton leads you through that fateful December day in 1945, revealing a chilling plan to assassinate General Patton. Backing up this shocking story with facts, photos, and eyewitness statements, Wilcox reveals long-hidden documents and accounts that explain how secrets Patton knew - and his strong anti-Soviet views - may have cost him his life.
Not only does Wilcox reveal how, why, and when, he also names names, exposing little-known stories and secrets of such key players as General "Wild Bill" Donovan, the storied head of the OSS (the predecessor to the CIA); an OSS assassin; an Army intelligence agent; and even Josef Stalin himself.
Target: Patton challenges readers to look at the evidence and question the conventional wisdom. After reading it, few will think of General Patton or the circumstances surrounding his death in the same way again.

Long sentences lead to difficult listening

The narration was poor. And the cadence of the narrator's voice didn't sound natural. I am not sure if it was totally the narrator's fault. Most of the sentences seemed incredibly long. I love history and especially world war two history but this was so difficult to listen to and required so much concentration I kept finding my mind wandering and would constantly have to re-listen to parts of the book. I finally gave up.
