STRANGE Death of World War II's Most Audacious General -



Readers around the world have thrilled to Killing Lincoln, Killing Kennedy, and Killing Jesus--riveting works of nonfiction that journey into the heart of the most famous murders in history. Now from Bill O’Reilly, anchor of The O’Reilly Factor, comes the most epic book of all in this multimillion-selling series: Killing Patton. General George S. Patton, Jr. died under mysterious circumstances in the months following the end of World War II. For almost seventy years, there has been suspicion that his death was not an accident--and may very well have been an act of assassination. Killing Patton takes readers inside the final year of the war and recounts the events surrounding Patton’s tragic demise, naming names of the many powerful individuals who wanted him silenced.

These are the last paintings I have done
Mac Arthur, Eisenhower and my favorite
Geo.S.Patton all West Point
Eisenhower was at the lower rung at studies.
Mac A.- was 6 feet tall
Served world war one and two
Patton (ole blood and Guts)
Patton was an olympic
and studied under Mac Arthur.
Known for his Ivory handled pistols.
Why did they not bring a hero home to Arlington. Something stinks there???

Something stinks.

Got the book but have not started it yet. This time of year reading takes a back seat to other things usually outdoors. Peace

Hello Yvonne! Now this would be a great summer read. I never knew about the circumstances of Patton's death, and again, I knew his son and daughter, yet never spoke of this. AND, I love your art so much, Yvonne!

You're right, Yvonne...something not right. Patton was a war hero and deserves a war hero's accolades.
When George C. Scott made a movie here, he lived in Dave's cousins' home. At this late stage of life, I found Mr. Scott to be a quiet, reserved gentleman.

I can see from your wonderful paintings that you are fascinated by those army generals. There are always rumours and unanswered questions about high ranked army people. These rumours make for interesting books and movies. Sometimes the truth comes up, and sometimes not.

Well Yvonne, I love your paintings, your own wonderful style... of course there is always intrigue and drama surrounding the rich, the famous, and the powerful. Sometimes the truth is not known till generations later,

Have a wonderful and glorious week end.
