Target: Patton: The Plot to Assassinate General George S. Patton.
By Robert K. Wilcox. The Plot to Assassinate General George S. Patton unearths and explores new and damning evidence about a multi-faceted assassination plot to kill one of America’s greatest generals.
In Target: Patton noted journalist Robert K. Wilcox reveals Patton’s unstoppable march through Europe and chronicles the hatred it inspired in U.S., British and Soviet military leaders. Wilcox explores first-hand accounts of the scheming against Patton within Gen. “Wild Bill” Donovan’s OSS.
Wilcox exposes long-hidden documents and accounts for the first time. Here are some of the little known stories and secrets of the mysterious plot to kill Patton: Patton’s life was threatened earlier in several other odd incidents; no one else was severely injured in the minor accident that paralyzed Patton; a Cadillac expert says the “historic” car in the Patton Museum is not really the 1938 Cadillac Patton was in that day; at least five known reports about the accident have vanished from government archives; Patton was making a remarkable recovery in a German hospital when he suddenly died; and many more.
