Killing Patton.

I am coming to the end of Bill O'Reilly's book and General Patton has just been fatally injured in the road crash on the 9th of December 1945.

It was interesting to see that the first unit ambulance and doctor on the scene was from the 290th Engineer Combat Battalion.


In spite of many comments to me by others on Bill O'Reilly, I found the book a very good read containing a lot of information I had not previously come across.




Can't wait to read it myself. Thanks for your contribution to our book section.


I did not know the fact about the 290th.

People can't separate the person from the info. I suppose, however, if Nancy Pelosi put out the best book ever on WWII, I wouldn't read that either!
