Having survived a spectacularly bloody campaign across Europe, America's most charismatic general, George Patton, was killed in a road accident near Mannheim, Germany, in December 1945. His brusque manner and outspoken nature had made him many enemies and his unexpected death has since provoked suspicion. This book analyses Patton's activities from October 1944 up to the fatal crash and investigates the circumstances of the accident to establish whether it might have been an assassination.
