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.

    "Fascinating History - also well read."
    Any additional comments?

    Patton was the greatest general America has ever produced. The Germans were mortified by him as were the Russians. A must read for all WW2 /Patton/Stalin history buffs!...Also the reader was excellent...five star *****-

    "Conspiracy to Kill Patton"
    What did you like best about Target: Patton? What did you like least?

    I have had the book on my shelf for over a year. Audible gave me the opportunity to actually complete the book in two days, all while behind the wheel of my car! THANKS AUDIBLE. However, the book itself was weak. A conspiracy to kill a leading figure from World War II??? The Germans had ample opportunity to do that since 1942! Sorry, not buying it.


    What three words best describe Lynn Benson’s voice?

    Descriptive; pleasant; articulate.
