Interesting,I saw something about this back a ways and the presumption then was he was killed by a blow to the neck with a rubber bushing fired at close range.

Thanks for posting, I’ve become increasingly interested in Patton’s death as the years go by.

I don't know much about the circumstances surrounding Gen. Patton's death, but I know a bit about his life and what he meant to our nation. I only half jokingly ask God that if he could spare Ronald Reagan and George Patton for a while, we sure could use them back here in the USA right now to straighten things out.

A few more if they're not doing anything...George Washington, JP Jones, Thomas Jefferson (along with James Madison, if for nothing else, to explain to the ACLU what was meant in our founding documents) Stonewall Jackson and Blackjack Pershing.

Scouts Out! Cavalry Ho!

I have always felt that was the case. He would have started a war with the “b@stards”(his words) Russians and we would have become a different people because of it.

Hello All, here’s the link to Amazon for the recent book on this topic. An entire show on Coast To Coast AM was devoted to this topic.

I read Target: Patton when it was released a couple years ago.

As much as one wants to believe our government would not have one of its greatest warriors iced, both his popularity and outspoken anti-communist views certainly would have been a huge impediment to the post-war agreements hammered out a Yalta. We're only now coming to grips with (and paying for) the level of communist infiltration into western diplomatic and intelligence circles. I can't say definitively that the OSS killed Patton, but I think it would be safe to assert that there's more to the circumstances surrounding his death than has been publicly aired.

There have been suspicions about this for many years.

This adds further details that I haven’t heard before.

It wouldn’t be too surprising. Roosevelt was surrounded by Communists, and was virtually a Communist himself. And although Harry Truman seems to be viewed more sympathetically by conservatives now than he was at the time, he was responsible for giving China to the Communists.

Patton, of course, wanted to take Berlin for the western allies, before the Russians got there, but he was not permitted to do it. Roosevelt had agreed to hand over Eastern Europe to good old Uncle Joe, as he was commonly called during the war.

He was murdered because of his staunch Conservative stance and his threat to the emerging new world order of which he was opposed and vocal. He was going to run for US Senator from CA and expose what he new and fight it. He was aggressive with the Soviets and did a lot to keep refugees out of Soviet hands, played a lot of cat-n-mouse with them and won more often then not. Yup, he was murdered, its really just a question of which Government got him first.

Conspiracy, no. Automobile accident, yes.

It is clear Patton’s death has been covered up. I think there is sufficient reason to initiate an official investigation. Until the truth is revealed, the rumors will persist, crucial history may be lost and an enormous crime may go unpunished. Patton deserves better.

I think that it is pretty clear that Patton’s death will go unpunished regardless of the results of any investigation.

As this article points out the driver of the truck is already dead. Those who ordered the assassination undoubtedly would be even older than the driver ensuring that they also are already dead.

Yes certainly Patton’s death should be investigated but the opportunity for punishment is long gone.

FYI.

Patton's Third Army deputy intel officer briefly was on the KGB's payroll

Patton’s military career was pretty much finished at the end of WWII because of his political views and outspoken attitude. There was no need to kill him.

This is the release in paperback of a book first published in 2008. I went through it then and compared to other books and to the doctor’s statement on Patton’s death. The surgeon was flown to Germany from the US and was on the same plane with Mrs. Patton. Reading his report, discounts these post-war speculations. One of the reasons for the “medical facilities 20 miles away” instead of in Mannheim, was that the facility was much better quality.

There has been speculation that it was a hit since the day that it happened. But the only evidence anyone has ever actually been able to produce is the obvious fact that Stalin had a motive to kill him. No actual evidence that he did.

Patton was murdered by our own U.S. crooked Government.

Why is everything (it seems) a conspiracy here at FR?
Patton, as he was prone to do, was sitting on the edge of his seat in the back of the vehicle in which he was a passenger. The back seat arrangement was designed to accommodate senior officers ... with several feet of room between the seat and the partition separating the driver. Patton was thrown some distance and as a result broke his neck. He never recovered to the extent he was being prepared to be flown home ... his wife (who flew in from the U.S.) was at his side the last few days. It was an accident people ... they happen with tragic consequences all the time.

General Patton was a great American and a great soldier. However, he was (at least for a time) anti-Semitic (unfortunately) and also seemed to share Charles Lindbergh's opinion that the struggle between the West and Russia was racial rather than ideological.

Of course, this doesn't change his role in defeating the Nazis and helping to expose the Holocaust to the world.

Here is a political reality check.

1. The US public opinion OPPOSED entry into WWII until Pearl Harbor, led by conservative Republicans.

2. It is easy to oppose the Soviets in retrospect, but at the time they were our vital ally. We had won WWII together.

3. There is NO WAY the US public would have favored a continuation of WWII, turned against our ally the Soviets.

I have no opinion about Patton’s demise, but I generally am skeptical about conspiracies.

Far too many involved.

He was assassinated by the Russians to keep from finishing the war. He was also a threat to FDR as a Presidential candidate, he may have changed our future.

Merry Christmas

My dad was in Germany at the time and the rumors they got pertained to Patton’s murder being a German Werwolf operation.
