Seemed more 'scattered' than the other Killing books. Less on Patton and more about what was going on throughout other areas of the war.

the final year of World War II and the death of General George Patton, specifically whether it was an accident or an assassination.

Having recently read Rick Atkinson's Guns of Last Light, this volume repeated some of the same information but also added details that Atkinson did not have in his book. Some reviewers have criticized the title as being misleading but if one wishes to understand why Patton was so controversial and had so many enemies which led some to believe he was assassinated, one must have the background on why this was believed by some which also means we must have the details about what the war and political situation was near the end of the war.

Since O'Reilly did so much research of diaries and journals, he was able to find many very personal details about Patton and others military leaders and politicians from all the countries involved including the Axis combatants. General Bernard Montgomery comes out badly in this volume as he does in other histories of this period of the war.

This was a fun read which while covering the history also included gossip much of what I heard or read before. He did find extra details that I had not seen before.

Síðustu mánuðir stríðsins skrifaðir í æsifréttastíl. Ýjað að hugsanlegum ástæðum og leiðum til að myrða Patton sem var einn hæfasti herforingi bandamanna. Lítil sagnfræði eða dýpt í skrifunum. ( )

Although it contained information about Patton's contributions to the American WWII efforts, including the Battle of the Bulge, the book was simply filled with too much extraneous information...Hitler's dog, Eisenhower's mistress/driver, and Rommel's suicide, for example. Only the first and last few minutes (about 20%) contain information about the mysterious circumstances of his death and then only circumstantial speculation...no facts to back it up. Read the book if you're into WWII in a small way as it will educate. ( )

We'll win this war, but we'll win it only by fighting and showing the Germans that we've got more guts than they have; or ever will have. We're not just going to shoot the sons-of-bitches, we're going to rip out their living Goddamned guts and use them to grease the treads of our tanks.
—GEN. GEORGE S. PATTON Jr., June 5, 1944
