I see this as a revisionist parlor game, nothing more.
Patton spoke truth to power,and power had him killed.Exactly how high up in power the blame goes we may not know until the Day of Judgment.
Weird - I was thinking about Patton and the two mules at breakfast a couple and a half hours ago.
I do remember, when I was a kid, my parents wondering this. I don’t see it, but ya never know.
Brad Meltzers “Decoded” claims it was an accident. The truck driver did not “disappear” as is claimed here.
Sounds like somebody is trying to sell a book.
I have read a carbon copy of the report of Patton’s death by the surgeon who was brought in from Boston to treat him, and was on the special flight with Mrs. Patton. Patton died from pnemonia and a pulmonary embolism as a complication of the accident. I still have access to the report and will try to remember to re-review it next week.
Additionally this story reminds me of a 1978 fiction movie entitled “The Brass Target” that had Patton being shot by a rubber bullet that cause the broken neck from the accident.
There are some outstanding comments to that article. Most will go over most of the sheeple’s heads or they’ll continue to deny it. They’ve been that brainwashed by Bolshevik/Communist propaganda over the last 100+ years.
FDR was nothing but a Communist sympathizer surrounded by Communists and fighting for them, just like what we have now.
IMHO, wouldn’t be surprised the fix was in for Patton. If he ran for POTUS, he would have been a good one.
Patton was famous, yes. But it took the 1970 movie starring George C. Scott to make him a legend to us baby boomers.
Interesting story, no evidence.
I can see the Soviets assassinating Patton, but to think that any high level American officials were behind the assassination of Patton is to just traffic in conspiracy theories. This is as bad as believing that the CIA or LBJ were responsible for JFK’s assassination.
FDR wasn’t perfect, but FDR-derangement syndrome is almost as bad as Bush-derangement syndrome. Stalin, unfortunately, was our ally in World War II. We probably wouldn’t have won the war without the Soviet Union. If Hitler hadn’t decided to invade the Soviet Union, then we might have had to fight both Germany and the Soviet Union. We probably wouldn’t have won in that case. I wish that the Soviet Union hadn’t come to dominate Eastern Europe, but what choice did the U.S. and Britain really have? Relations between the Anglo-Saxon powers and the Soviet Union may have fallen apart then, and the war wasn’t even over yet. FDR and Churchill had hoped that Stalin would keep his promise out of fear of retaliation and let Soviet-occupied Eastern European countries have free and fair democratic elections. But after World War II was over, the U.S. and Britain were too war-weary to fight another war against the Soviet Union, contrary to what Patton might have wanted. The U.S. and Britain very well could have landed in Europe through Greece, as Churchill had wanted to counter Soviet ambitions, but that wouldn’t have created a second major front against Germany. Yes, I know that some of FDR’s advisers were Communist sympathizers, but I still think that this mattered little if any in the Soviet domination of Eastern Europe.
