The death of General George S. Patton is shrouded in mystery. While officially the result of an unfortunate car accident, the evidence points to a far more malevolent plot: murder. So says investigative and military journalist Robert K. Wilcox in his book: Target: Patton: The Plot to Assassinate General George S. Patton. Written like a WWII spy thriller and meticulously researched, Target: Patton leads you through that fateful December day in 1945, revealing a chilling plan to assassinate General Patton. Backing up this shocking story with facts, photos, and eyewitness statements, Wilcox reveals long-hidden documents and accounts that explain how secrets Patton knew; and his strong anti-Soviet views;may have cost him his life. Not only does Wilcox reveal how, why, and when, he also names names; exposing little-known stories and secrets of such key players as General "Wild Bill" Donovan, the storied head of the OSS (the predecessor to the CIA); an OSS assassin; an Army intelligence agent; and even Josef Stalin himself. Target: Patton challenges readers to look at the evidence and question the conventional wisdom. After reading it, few will think of General Patton; or the circumstances surrounding his death; in the same way again.

In this feat of imaginative writing, Matthew Frend imagines a world in which the year is 2265 and Earth and its populace is a utopia, free-willed and contented, unlimited in its resources, with a past found in virtually accessible simulations. One such simulation is built around General George S. Patton's car accident in 1945. The simulation accesses an alternate world, where General Patton had not been killed and the U.S.S.R. spreads its tyranny throughout the post-war world. Patton's homeland will find itself embroiled in another war, where the power of individual sacrifice makes a last ditch effort against the corrupt totalitarian state...

The Head Military Archivist at the College Park National Archives is responsible for the title for this book, when he told the author, "You have discovered the best kept secret of World War Two and you are proving it..." Researched for over twenty years, the author has told the true story of how a Colonel on General Eisenhower's staff carried out Ike's verbal order to make the crash of a "Shot Down by Friendly Fire" Top Secret B-24 disappear! The mysterious Colonel was reported by reliable eyewitnesses to have been present at every location in France and England, as Commanding Officers of the involved units broke regulations that should have led to their careers ending in a military prison. He was very young, he could speak perfect French and German, and he had better personal maps of France than the Army issued. When he told a Commander to do something, it was done, no matter how many regulations were broken. He knew exactly how to bypass Graves Registration Regulations and was directly responsible for hiding the partial remains of three men killed in the crash of the Top Secret B-24 and three complete bodies of men killed in the related crash of a B-17. Two of the three hidden dead at the B-17 crash site, were later awarded the Medal Of Honor. The author, to write a book the average reader might enjoy, has created the life of this Colonel from conception to where he would have felt free to tell exactly what he had done during World War Two and what he may have done to protect himself and the OSS personnel used by General Eisenhower to complete the cover-up of the best kept secret of World War Two. After you have read this book, you will understand there was a real motive for killing Patton. General Patton knew the truth and he was prepared to expose it in January, 1945. General Patton knew all about and understood the need for covering up the shoot down of the Top Secret B-24. He was not prepared to allow a chain of Commanders, leading all the way to the Presidential White House to besmirch the highest United States military medal, the Medal Of Honor. To him, it was a sacred Honor and he could not permit the continued use of two falsified Medal Of Honor awards to stand. General Eisenhower, the very man who was attempting to destroy Patton, was guilty of much worse than Patton had done. The accident was an accident, it happened the day before General Patton would have been beyond their control. It is very plausible, Patton would have not survived the planned pheasant hunting trip that day, which was interrupted by the accident. As an aside, he would have used a presentation shotgun to shoot pheasant, not a rifle. Then, his mysterious death occurred as plans were put in place to move him beyond their control within a couple of days. When you have completed this book, you can decide for yourself, was there a real motive for killing Patton by those who could not let the American people learn what they had done during the war?
This book explores the contributions of Italian Americans employed by the Office of Strategic Services (OSS) during World War II. Italian Americans fluent in Italian language and customs became integral parts of intelligence operations working behind enemy lines. These units obtained priceless military information that significantly helped defeat the Axis. They parachuted into frozen mountains tops to link up with Italian guerilla units in northern Italy or hovered in small patrol torpedo boats and row boats across the Mediterranean Sea in pitch black darkness to destroy railroad junctions.
First in the series blending alternate history, time travel, and detective thriller, from a Nebula and Hugo Award nominee. There are a million different Earths across an infinite number of timelines—and every one of them is in peril. Mark Strang became a bodyguard and private investigator when terrorists killed his family; now he spends his days protecting Pittsburgh’s helpless and abused. But while on a mission to save the life of a ten-year-old girl, Strang is inexplicably cast into an alternate reality, transported to a different time on another Earth, where America was defeated in the Second World War and now suffers under the brutal yoke of Nazi oppression. Joining up with the remnants of the Resistance in the Free Zone—and allied with such notable commanders as George Patton and John F. Kennedy—Strang is suddenly a marked man and the last hope in a desperate fight for freedom, not only on this world but on countless others. For a war unlike any other is raging across time and dimensions, threatening every possible Earth, including Strang’s own. And the enemy will not rest until the entire multiverse is in chains. In his epic and action-packed science fiction saga the Timeline Wars, John Barnes takes alternate-history SF to new heights, ingeniously reinventing and reinvigorating a genre popularized by such acclaimed authors as Harry Turtledove while joining the stellar ranks of Robert Heinlein and Joe Haldeman.
Great Battles for Boys sends young readers "into the fight." From weapons, strategies, and military leaders to bayonets, bullets, and bombs, boys discover what really happened in these historic conflicts. In this volume, the story begins with Hitler's rise to power in 1930s Germany. Readers are then plunged into the devastating invasion of Poland which launched World War II. In chronological order, the crucial battles proceed through Europe and North Africa, culminating in the Normandy invasion, the Battle of the Bulge, and Victory in Europe. Some little-know yet fascinating battles are also included, such as Finland's Winter War, when a tiny tribe of ordinary men defeated Stalin's massive Red Army. With historic photographs, maps, and short, powerful chapters, Great Battles for Boys is ideal for even the most reluctant readers. History not only leaps off the page, but boys will see how these conflicts shaped their world, and why "Freedom isn't free"--because it's bought with the blood of warriors and patriots. "I strongly recommend this book, particularly to young readers who aren't provided this kind of insight in standard texts." - Randolph Carter Harrison, retired officer Army Special Forces, and former head of media relations, The Boeing Company.

Excerpt: World War I World War II George Smith Patton, Jr. (November 11, 1885 - December 21, 1945) was a United States Army officer best known for his leadership while commanding corps and armies as a general during World War II. He was also well known for his eccentricity and controversial outspokenness. Patton was commissioned in the U.S. Army after his graduation from the U.S. Military Academy at West Point in 1909. In 1916-17, he participated in the unsuccessful Pancho Villa Expedition, a U.S. operation that attempted to capture the Mexican revolutionary. In World War I, he was the first officer assigned to the new United States Tank Corps and saw action in France. In World War II, he commanded corps and armies in North Africa, Sicily, and the European Theater of Operations. In 1944, Patton assumed command of the U.S. Third Army, which under his leadership advanced farther, captured more enemy prisoners, and liberated more territory in less time than any other army in military history. George Smith Patton was the grandfather of Patton. He was killed at the Battle of Opequon in 1864 during the American Civil War.George S...
Arguing that American Generals Sherman and Patton, as well as ancient Athenian General Epaminondas, were the three greatest military leaders in history, the author makes his case by demonstrating the qualities, on and off the battlefield, that made them great.
