Military Historian Robert Wilcox claims in a new book that Second World War General George S. Patton was murdered by assassin Douglas Bazata to cover up the Allied forces mistakes that cost thousands of lives.
According to Mr. Wilcox
, the Office of Strategic Services, the precursor to the Central Intelligence Agency, caused Gen. Patton's car to crash, which resulted in his official death of a blood clot 12 days later. Mr. Wilcox claims that as Gen. Patton lay in his hospital bed in Germany, he was poisoned.
Mr. Wilcox says that Gen. Patton was going to reveal devastating mistakes made by the Supreme Allied Command, which included General Dwight D. Eisenhower, the future Republican President. “I don’t believe Eisenhower would ever have been elected president if Patton had lived to say the things he wanted to say,” Wilcox writes.
Dwight Eisenhower was a five-star general in the U.S. Army and, as Supreme Commander of the Allied forces in Europe, he led the invasion of France and Germany in 1944 and 1945. Seven years later, he became the first supreme commander of NATO.
“He was going to resign and spill wartime secrets that would have ruined careers.” Mr. Wilcox even found the former U.S. government assassin Douglas Bazata
who admitted to him that he had a hand in the General’s death.
“He confessed to me that he had caused Patton’s ‘accident’ and that he had been ordered to do so by Office of Strategic Services boss General William ‘Wild Bill’ Donovan.”
