Since WWII, historians have lionized General Patton for his bold and daring leadership during Allied campaigns. His many biographers have highlighted his ability to instill discipline, remove incompetent leaders, and form an effective staff. While these attributes evolved in his persona through his military training, Patton applied his intellect to develop a deep understanding of the new methods of warfare that armies encountered on the battlefields of WWII. The application of operational art now required knowledge grounded in the close coordination of air, sea, and land assets to achieve victories at both the strategic and tactical level. While historical examples of daring victories demonstrate what western culture loves in a war hero, a critical analysis of Patton's actions reveal a more compelling story. Closer examination of his actions in the latter stages of the Tunisian campaign, during the Sicilian campaign, and in Western Europe from Normandy to the Rhineland, demonstrate that he excelled at achieving tactical successes, but did not perform well when integrating those tactical successes in campaigns to achieve strategic aims. Patton developed a reputation as a bold and daring leader; however, analysis of WWII campaigns reveals that he did not apply what the US Army now refers to as operational art. 1.

Today, one still encounters the continued fascination with Patton in works suc
Killing England "Killing England: The Brutal Struggle for American Independence," is the first announcement in Mr. O'Reilly's popular history series since Fox fired him. Every fall for the latter seven years, Bill O'Reilly, the retired Fox News host, printed a new title in his blockbuster "Killing" series. And time without fail, the books reach the top of the nonfiction best-seller list. It is a book he wrote with Martin Dugard about the Revolutionary War. The subject only ought to be attractive to his conservative fan base. There are many reasons for these listless preorder sales, including maybe the erosion of Mr. O'Reilly's fan base after reports that he had settled claims by five females who accused him of sexual harassment or verbal abuse. The scandal and the resulting advertising boycotts cost him his job at Fox, divesting him of a platform to promote his books to a nightly audience of almost four million viewers. But Mr. O'Reilly's publishing career isn't over by any stretch. As sales prove and his publisher, Henry Holt, persisted by him after Fox fired him. And big book retailers like Amazon and Barnes & Noble continue to sell his books. A spokeswoman for Barnes & Noble stated that the chain would present "Killing England" prominently in its buildings and that the company was "treating it like all best-selling books." A representative for Holt said the company had a national media and advertising plan for the title. "We are just as passionate and supportive of Bill O'Reilly's newest book, 'Killing England, ' as we have been about his other best-selling titles we've printed for him." But Mr. O'Reilly's "Killing" books, which he writes with Mr. Dugard, succeeded in large part because they were a piece of his massive media empire. The titles have typically sold more than a million copies in the first few months - a colossal figure for nonfiction. Previous editions in the series, all instant No. 1 New York Times bestsellers, were "Killing Kennedy," "Killing Linc
The powerful and riveting new book in the multimillion-selling Killing series by Bill O'Reilly and Martin Dugard Autumn 1944. World War II is nearly over in Europe but is escalating in the Pacific, where American soldiers face an opponent who will go to any length to avoid defeat. The Japanese army follows the samurai code of Bushido, stipulating that surrender is a form of dishonor. Killing the Rising Sun takes readers to the bloody tropical-island battlefields of Peleliu and Iwo Jima and to the embattled Philippines, where General Douglas MacArthur has made a triumphant return and is plotting a full-scale invasion of Japan. Across the globe in Los Alamos, New Mexico, Dr. J. Robert Oppenheimer and his team of scientists are preparing to test the deadliest weapon known to mankind. In Washington, DC, FDR dies in office and Harry Truman ascends to the presidency, only to face the most important political decision in history: whether to use that weapon. And in Tokyo, Emperor Hirohito, who is considered a deity by his subjects, refuses to surrender, despite a massive and mounting death toll. Told in the same page-turning style of Killing Lincoln, Killing Kennedy, Killing Jesus, Killing Patton, and Killing Reagan, this epic saga details the final moments of World War II like never before.

PLEASE NOTE: This is a summary of the book and NOT the original book. Killing Patton by Bill O’Reilly and Martin Dugard - A 30-minute Instaread Summary Inside this Instaread Summary: • Overview of the entire book • Introduction to the important people in the book • Summary and analysis of all the chapters in the book • Key Takeaways of the book • A Reader's Perspective Preview of this summary:Chapter 1 On October 3, 1944, Patton’s forces were fighting for Fort Driant, a heavily fortified German position near the French town of Metz. The men of his Third Army were inspired a few months earlier by his speech before D-Day, in which Patton told them that Americans do not lose. Up to that point, Patton had never lost a battle. Patton’s men both loved and feared him. He was known for salty language, which he said he used because he wanted to speak as his men did. The battle at Metz went wrong. Contrary to Patton’s intelligence, the German defenders were tough veterans and their position was well protected. Patton was short on troops, supplies and ammunition. General Dwight D. Eisenhower, the supreme commander of allied troops in Europe, ordered Patton to stand down so that British forces under Bernard Law Montgomery could lead the offensive into Germany. This was a political decision to honor British’s sacrifice during the war, but Patton was angry over being left out and Eisenhower’s decision to cut back his supplies. Patton thought his forces and Montgomery’s should move into Germany at the same time. Patton remained determined to take Driant and Metz. Unfortunately, his forces suffered severe casualties and he was forced to back down. He believed Eisenhower’s cuts caused his first defeat. Eisenhower’s order gave the Germans an opportunity to mount a counteroffensive. Their leader, Adolf Hitler, feared Patton especially and wanted to keep him away from this particular battlefield...
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 President
By early 1945, the destruction of the German Nazi State seems certain. The Allied forces, led by American generals George S. Patton and Dwight D. Eisenhower, are gaining control of Europe, leaving German leaders scrambling. Facing defeat, Adolf Hitler flees to a secret bunker with his new wife, Eva Braun, and his beloved dog, Blondi. It is there that all three would meet their end, thus ending the Third Reich and one of the darkest chapters of history. Hitler's Last Days is a gripping account of the death of one of the most reviled villains of the 20th century—a man whose regime of murder and terror haunts the world even today. Adapted from Bill O'Reilly's historical thriller Killing Patton, this book will have young readers—and grown-ups too—hooked on history. This thoroughly-researched and documented book can be worked into multiple aspects of the common core curriculum.
General George S. Patton Jr. is one of the most successful yet misunderstood figures in American military history. Despite the many books and articles written about him, none considers in depth how his love of history shaped the course of his life. In this thematic biography, Furman Daniel traces Patton’s obsession with history and argues that it informed and contributed to many of his successes, both on and off the battlefield. Patton deliberately cultivated the image of himself as a warrior from ages past; the more interesting truth is that he was an exceptionally dedicated student of history. He was a hard worker and voracious reader who gave a great deal of thought to how military history might inform his endeavors. Most scholars have overlooked this element of Patton’s character, which Daniel argues is essential to understanding the man’s genius.

"Celebrated historian Winston Groom tells the story of three remarkable men-of-arms who rose from the gruesome hell of the First World War to become the finest generals of their generation during World War II. George Marshall, George Patton, and Douglas MacArthur redefined America's ideas of military leadership and brought forth a new generation of American soldier. Their efforts revealed to the world the grit and determination that would become synonymous with America in the post-war years. Virginian George Marshall led his class at the Virginia Military Institute to become the principal planner of the Battle of the Meuse-Argonne, the greatest American operation, which ended the conflict. Afterward, he rose to become the Army's Chief of Staff, where he balanced the volatility of generals such as Patton and MacArthur for the good of the country. Like Marshall, George Patton, who is remembered as one of the most heroic and controversial generals in American history, overcame early academic difficulties to graduate at the top of his class at West Point. He would build and command the Army's burgeoning tank division, lead the successful invasion of North Africa during World War II, a
The WWII diary of a US soldier and Soviet spy who worked closely with General Patton is presented in this fully annotated edition. Robert S. Allen is one of the more controversial figures of the Second World War. After serving in France during World War I, he left the military to start a career as a syndicated columnist, eventually becoming the Washington, DC, bureau chief for the Christian Science Monitor. In that time, he also developed a sideline as a paid informant for the KGB. When American entered World War II, Allen rejoined the army to serve as General Patton's chief of situation and executive officer for operations. He was considered such an authority on Patton after the war that Twentieth Century-Fox asked him to develop a film script about the general. In Forward with Patton, John Nelson Rickard presents a complete, annotated edition of Colonel Allen's World War II diary for 1944-1945. The entries reflect Allen's private thoughts on the Third Army and provide an invaluable perspective on Patton, whom Allen deeply admired.
