What Book's Up, Buttercup?

ERC – Microhistory – Killing Patton: The Strange Death of World War II’s Most Audacious General @bookdout

on May 19, 2015

I just finished Killing Patton: The Strange Death of World War II’s Most Audacious General. Once again, Bill O’Reilly sets out to create a book about a key historical figure, and it is filled with fascinating facts, information, and rich with history. This book explored not only Patton, but other key political figures such as FDR, Churchill, Hitler, Mussolini, and many others. There are mentions to special officers in the military who made key impacts in the war, even if their lives were cut extremely short. Patton was a character, a bold, outspoken character who could inspire the troops with energy, or slight an entire country without even realizing it. He had few greater loves than his country and his men, and those loves included his family. His death is surrounded by an air of mystery and, while this book mentions only and does not explore them, is covered in conspiracy theories. I loved this book by Bill O’Reilly, as I have his other books, and I give it five shiny gold stars. I especially loved the audio version, as O’Reilly is a powerful narrator. Wonderful read!
