Storyline

Silence Patton asks the question: Why was General Patton silenced during his service in World War II? Prevented from receiving needed supplies that would have ended the war nine months earlier, freed the death camps, and prevented Russian invasion of the Eastern Bloc, and Stalin's murderous rampage. Why was he fired as General of the Third Army and relegated to a governorship of post-war Bavaria? Who were his enemies? Was he a threat to Eisenhower, Montgomery, Churchill, and Bradley? And is it possible as some say that the General's freakish collision with an Army truck, on the day before his departure for US, was not really an accident? Or was Patton not only dismissed by his peers, but the victim of an assassin's bullet at their behest? Was his personal silence necessary? Written by Robert Orlando

Very well done - great facts and historic perspective
28 August 2019 | by jserwachSee all my reviews

I've read literally dozens of books and seen the 1970 classic "Patton'' annually for decades. In "Silencing Patton,'' Robert Orlando builds on the story answering many of the "Why'' questions you may ask yourself during other stories about America's greatest general. The victors get to write the history of wars and each nation tends to focus on its own version of history when telling the colossal story that is the great World War II. "Silencing Patton" explains the backstory that made Patton controversial, feared and beloved in his own time and in the decades since.
