My impression was not.

My impression from I heard also.

So, the plot thickens?

Was Patton murdered?

If so why?

If not, then what happened to his 'day driver?'

Doesn't that mean he was good at what he did? Your uncle was fighting for the wrong side, the same side that killed Patton when he found out what was going on.

I would hope Patton wasnt assassinated, he's obviously one of the few American generals that a lot of ppl like. Anyways, Patton believed in reincarnation so he should be around somewhere fighting.


It would be fitting, Patton, who believed himself the incarnated Julius Caesar, be assassinated by his fellow countrymen of a Republic.

Well looks like he WAS assassinated according to this book coming out.

New Book Reveals Patton was Silenced

The newly unearthed diaries of a colourful assassin for the wartime Office of Strategic Services (OSS), the forerunner of the CIA, reveal that American spy chiefs wanted Patton dead because he was threatening to expose allied collusion with the Russians that cost American lives.

I, for one, am an admirer of General Patton and will be reading this book asap. Now begs the question, is this colourful assassin's information trustworthy???

We all know how outspoken Patton was to EVERYBODY. He pulled no punches in his feelings about whomever he spoke to or about. One of the many things i admire about the man.

Just wanted to add this here instead of creating a whole new one.

My $.02

For those here who prefer to stay in the thread, here's key info from Silver's interesting link:

The death of General Patton in December 1945, is one of the enduring mysteries of the war era. Although he had suffered serious injuries in a car crash in Manheim, he was thought to be recovering and was on the verge of flying home.

But after a decade-long investigation, military historian Robert Wilcox claims that OSS head General "Wild Bill" Donovan ordered a highly decorated marksman called Douglas Bazata to silence Patton, who gloried in the nickname "Old Blood and Guts".

His book, "Target Patton", contains interviews with Mr Bazata, who died in 1999, and extracts from his diaries, detailing how he staged the car crash by getting a troop truck to plough into Patton's Cadillac and then shot the general with a low-velocity projectile, which broke his neck while his fellow passengers escaped without a scratch.

Mr Bazata also suggested that when Patton began to recover from his injuries, US officials turned a blind eye as agents of the NKVD, the forerunner of the KGB, poisoned the general.

Mr Wilcox told The Sunday Telegraph that when he spoke to Mr Bazata: "He was struggling with himself, all these killings he had done. He confessed to me that he had caused the accident, that he was ordered to do so by Wild Bill Donovan.

This brings up the issue of whether Patton was in a Jeep or a Cadillac, how he was finished off later and by whom, and leaves wide open what ever happened to Patton's driver and the truck driver.

Further investigation if obviously needed before classifying this as an accidental death.

I posted this new information into the breaking news area in hopes it would get some responses and some investigation done. I linked to this thread in that initial post also. So hopefully this will be gotten to the bottom of in one thread or another.

Patton was assassinated

UM... Truman was a Democrat... so get your conspiracy theory right. The Republicans weren't cooking anything up if you're referencing Truman. DOH...

Despite his injuries, he was actually improving and had regained some movement in his extremities when suddenly his condition severely worsened and he died. I would think that poisoning was a likely possibility by the OSS or the Russians is a very real possibility. Not surprisingly, no autopsy was ever performed, the driver of the other vehicle vanished, and no investigation of the accident was performed. Coincidence, I doubt it.

Target: Patton: The Plot to Assassinate General George S. Patton by Robert K. Wilcox

Synopsis He was the most controversial American general in World War II-and also one of the most successful, courageous, and audacious. As a post-war administrator of defeated Germany, he sounded alarm bells about the dangers of Soviet encroachment into Europe. Politically, he was a lightning rod-an outspoken conservative who continually embarrassed his superiors with his uncensored, undiplomatic, and unrestrained comments to the press. He was General George S. Patton Jr., old Blood and Guts.

In 1945, shortly before he was to fly home to the states as a conquering hero, he was involved in a mysterious car crash that left him partially paralyzed. Two weeks later, just as his doctors were about to send him home to finish his recovery, he was dead. The army ruled the car crash an accident, his death natural. Yet witness testimony on the crash conflicted, key players in the incident disappeared, official reports vanished, soldiers were ordered to keep silent, and there was no autopsy performed on the body.

Investigative and military reporter Robert Wilcox, author of Black Aces High and Wings of Fury, has spent more than ten years investigating these mysteries, and in Target: Patton he has written an electrifying account of the shocking circumstances-long hidden from the public-surrounding the death of America's most famous general.

In Target: Patton, you'll discover:
* The extraordinary war hero, artist, and mercenary who said he was ordered by U.S. intelligence to assassinate Patton
* The OSS agent who knew Patton was in danger and tried to save him
* New evidence from recently declassified documents revealing doubts about the official version ofPatton's death
* The final stories of those involved in the accident, including those who were thought to have disappeared-until now Provocative, shocking, and compelling, Target:
Patton takes you through the maze of denials, contradictions, and treacheries behind one of the great unsolved mysteries of World War II.

All this to cover his trip to the Baltic Sea to destroy saucer parts
before the Russians got there. We had the design drawings and
the scientists. Perhaps the General did not understand.
Perhaps one item escaped and landed up with Bill Lyne on "UFO Hunters".
