According to a newly published book General George Patton was assassinated in 1945 to stop him talking about secret talks that had taken place with the Soviets. What are your comments on this accusation? Positive comments only please.

Although he had suffered serious injuries in a car crash in Manheim, he was thought to be recovering and was on the verge of flying home. “The evidence is that the Russians finished the job.”

After the war he became a celebrated artist who enjoyed the patronage of Princess Grace of Monaco and the Duke and Duchess of Windsor. He earned four purple hearts, a Distinguished Service Cross and the French Croix de Guerre three times over for his efforts.

George Patton, a dynamic controversialist who wore ivory-handled revolvers on each hip and was the subject of an Oscar winning film starring George C.

Patton, who distrusted the Russians, believed Eisenhower wrongly prevented him closing the so-called Falaise Gap in the autumn of 1944, allowing hundreds of thousands of German troops to escape to fight again,.

But his ambition to get to Berlin before Soviet forces was thwarted by supreme allied commander Dwight D. . He confessed to me that he had caused the accident, that he was ordered to do so by Wild Bill Donovan.

Another account from a book that casts further shadows onto how he was killed………….

The newly unearthed diaries of a colourful assassin for the wartime Office of Strategic Services (OSS), the forerunner of the CIA, reveal that American spy chiefs wanted Patton dead because he was threatening to expose allied collusion with the Russians that cost American lives. This led to the deaths of thousands of Americans during their winter counter-offensive that became known as the Battle of the Bulge. He was a member of the Jedburghs, the elite unit who parachuted into France to help organise the Resistance in the run up to D-Day in 1944.

“He also knew secrets of the war which would have ruined careers. Patton Historical Society, said he hopes the book will lead to definitive proof of the plot being uncovered.

The driver of the truck was whisked away to London before he could be questioned and no autopsy was performed on Patton’s body. The administration thought he was nuts.

Mr Wilcox also tracked down and interviewed Stephen Skubik, an officer in the Counter-Intelligence Corps of the US Army, who said he learnt that Patton was on Stalin’s death list.

Mr Bazata also suggested that when Patton began to recover from his injuries, US officials turned a blind eye as agents of the NKVD, the forerunner of the KGB, poisoned the general. He was going to really open the door on a lot of things that they screwed up over there.”

The scenario sounds far fetched but Mr Wilcox has assembled a compelling case that US officials had something to hide.

His book, “Target Patton”, contains interviews with Mr Bazata, who died in 1999, and extracts from his diaries, detailing how he staged the car crash by getting a troop truck to plough into Patton’s Cadillac and then shot the general with a low-velocity projectile, which broke his neck while his fellow passengers escaped without a scratch.

“Donovan told him: ‘We’ve got a terrible situation with this great patriot, he’s out of control and we must save him from himself and from ruining everything the allies have done.’ I believe Douglas Bazata.

“You have two strong witnesses here,” Mr Wilcox said. Scott, commanded the US 3rd Army, which cut a swathe through France after D-Day.

Mr Wilcox told The Sunday Telegraph that when he spoke to Mr Bazata: “He was struggling with himself, all these killings he had done. Skubik repeatedly alerted Donovan, who simply had him sent back to the US. At least five documents relating to the car accident have been removed from US archives.

Mr Wilcox told The Sunday Telegraph: “Patton was going to resign from the Army.

In order to placate Stalin, the 3rd Army was also ordered to a halt as it reached the German border and was prevented from seizing either Berlin or Prague, moves that could have prevented Soviet domination of Eastern Europe after the war.

The death of General Patton in December 1945, is one of the enduring mysteries of the war era. He’s a sterling guy.”

With the help of a Cadillac expert from Detroit, Mr Wilcox has proved that the car on display in the Patton museum at Fort Knox is not the one Patton was driving. I don’t think Dwight Eisenhower would ever have been elected president if Patton had lived to say the things he wanted to say.” Mr Wilcox added: “I think there’s enough evidence here that if I were to go to a grand jury I could probably get an indictment, but perhaps not a conviction.”

He was friends with Salvador Dali, who painted a portrait of Bazata as Don Quixote.

He ended his career as an aide to President Ronald Reagan’s Navy Secretary John Lehman, a member of the 9/11 Commission and adviser to John McCain’s presidential campaign.

But after a decade-long investigation, military historian Robert Wilcox claims that OSS head General “Wild Bill” Donovan ordered a highly decorated marksman called Douglas Bazata to silence Patton, who gloried in the nickname “Old Blood and Guts”. He wanted to go to war with the Russians. He said: “There were a lot of people who were pretty damn glad that Patton died.

Charles Province, President of the George S. Eisenhower, who gave Patton’s petrol supplies to the more cautious British General Bernard Montgomery.

“That is a cover-up,” Mr Wilcox said.

Mr Bazata led an extraordinary life
