I know you tend to focus on the Japanese side of things...but Patton has always interested me. Just wondering how the book was.

The author is Bil O'Reilly, therefore it is crap.

Saved you some research there.

Thanks!

I have no particular problem with O'Reilly, but have read none of his books. I did, for the overall WWII focus area, take a look at the end of this one. I've read 2 books alleging the assassination of George, neither of which convinced me. This one didn't either, in the quick scan. If it turns up at a library sale, for $2, I'll get it.

Moving now to Hoyt's book on the Marianas. Hoyt likely wrote more of my books on the Pacific than anyone else.

Didn't know Sarah wrote military history.

Well, military SF. Which is what I have stacked up to read, over there.

Besides the book Killng Patton, the author also wrote three more books: Killing Kennedy, Killing Lincoln, and Killing Jesus.

Mostly fiction, I guess.

Only way to tell is to read them, or to read a definitive objective review of them. I've done neither, so I don't know.
