The Silence of Patton

The Murder of a Great General

By Dr. WilliamsPublished 6 years ago 5 min read

Many times we are taught there are absolutes. What we read and are taught there are certain facts that shouldn't be called into question. In mathematics, for instance, 1+1=2 is a fact that should not be questioned. Many times we are taught, especially in history, there are underlying circumstances where certain facts come into light years and even decades afterward that dispute what we originally thought was true and factual. Some believe in conspiracy theories backed up by unsubstantiated incidents and non-verifiable information. Then there are other times what we think are just conspiracy theories; later on, verifiable information comes to light that suggests that maybe it wasn't a conspiracy after all but certain events really did happen.

One of the most fascinating historical references that showcase events recorded in today's history may have been altered to cover up what actually did occur. What students are taught and still are purposely omits certain information that would alter the way we look at people and events that shaped the course of nations. The events during the last part of World War II suggest that information withheld or not recorded played a vital role in the future of not only the United States but Russia and the rest of the world.

Throughout history, in times of war, ordinary men were called upon to do extraordinary things. Feats of bravery and courage under fire are all testaments to the mental fortitude that surfaces in times of imminent danger. The great war heroes of history all had the mental tenacity to not only survive but to persevere until their mission was accomplished. When we look back in history to America's great military heroes like Sergeant York, Audie Murphy, General MacArthur, the one that stands out (though many consider him a very controversial figure) is General George Patton. He has been called many things including a military genius, a legend, and even a son-of-a-bitch. But even today, 72 years after his death, he is still considered to be the one U.S. Army General that epitomizes the fighting soldier of World War II.

Tragically though, his life was cut short by acts that remain unconvincing about the details surrounding his last days. History points that his untimely demise was due to a traffic accident in which Patton suffered severe neck and head trauma and later died of an embolism due to the results of that accident. Today, though new evidence has shed light on the death of America's greatest war general. Was he a target of America's Top Brass and Russian influence? Was the traffic accident staged in order to facilitate the murder of General Patton? And why, if he wasn't murdered, did the Army go to such lengths to cover up all the evidence following the accident. And why was there no report of the accident filed? Another disturbing fact: why was there no autopsy performed to uncover the true cause of death? All of these questions that have arisen more than suggest there is more to the facts than our history books state.

Who was General Patton? He was, after all, the richest general of the United States. A man of extraordinary talent. A man of contradictory characteristics. Patton was the one soldier from the second World War who stood apart from all the rest. He was the one general that the Germans feared the most. Without deviation, he exerted his full energies toward winning and the pursuit of excellence. He was, after all, harder on himself than he was on any of his men. Wounded during the last part of World War I, he became an expert in Tank Warfare. The success in North Africa during World War II is a testament to his leadership and the training of his men. So then why was Patton's life cut short?

The evidence that points to Patton's assassination has been mounting for the past decade so that today there is more than enough information to dispute prior knowledge that Patton died of injuries suffered in that fateful car crash in Germany. On that day in December, right before Patton was to return to the United States to begin a speaking tour, the General was the only person injured in what was described as just a fender-bender. The truck that hit Patton's car was waiting for the general's car on the other side of the road. It didn't start up until the general's car came into view. The truck that sideswiped the car was a stolen army truck driven by an unidentified soldier and a black passenger. Immediately after hitting the general's car, the two inside the truck vanished as did the driver, a sergeant in a jeep who was leading the Patton Cadillac. Almost to the second after the crash, high ranking officers descended upon the car crash. It was an early Sunday morning. If this accident wasn't staged, how come so many army officers arrived almost to the moment of this accident? Or was this a staged crash to carry out a directive to eliminate the general? Another interesting point that signals this was no accident all reports and investigations have mysteriously disappeared.

Within 12 days after the accident, the General died of an apparent sudden embolism, we were originally thought to believe. Now, information has surfaced that the general was poisoned and that is why there was no autopsy and why the general was quickly buried in Germany instead of the United States. We must remember at the time Patton was the only high ranking general pointing out that the Soviets were more interested in taking over Germany for themselves. Patton knew that the Soviets in taking over Germany would lead the United States into the Cold War. Patton was censored, ignored, and dismissed by Ike and the other American top brass. Patton was threatening to expose what really went on during the war that cost more American lives than necessary. The insight of Patton proved that he was correct in his assumptions about the Soviets under Stalin.

This exposure by Patton would have squashed the ambitions and reputations of Ike, who was the Allied Supreme Commander. It also would have exposed the Russian treachery in which the United States gave Stalin basically carte blanche over Eastern Europe. A move that Patton realized and was prepared to fight against this treachery. This the American and Soviet governments feared and reacted in a most brutal cover up to disguise the real reason for the death of America's great general.
