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.
Patton is by far my favortite hidtorical figure. His early life is actually far more interesting than what he did during WW2.
Not to mention the other problem with the hospital in Mannheim. It's very very noisy there because it's located right next to the steamroller factory.
