All details of General George Patton's accident and subsequent death were fully investigated by members of the authors military unit, while he was stationed in Germany after World War II. Major Sola the author, is in a unique position of being one of only three people still alive, who actually know all the facts of the official U.S. Army Investigation. There is still a great deal of hearsay and false speculation. Did General Patton die demanding whiskey from his nurses? What actually killed him and why? Why is his grave on foreign soil and not in The National Arlington Commentary. Was he "a dollar a year man" the true facts and answers are in this book. General Patton was a very color full and profane person in one of his final orders to his senior staff, he said "I want all you purple bellied bastards pissing in the Elbe River tomorrow morning.." Against all odds Major Sola returned from World War II on the same troop ship, the General Squire. Aboard was Mickey Roonie, returning from a USA tour in Europe. Major Sola was the commander of all troops on board. In this capacity he talked to Mickey "all the way home to the USA"- total 5 days. This year Mickey is 95 and married nine times however the last one lasted 20 years. Also read about the authors military record during World War II. Promoted in combat from Private to Sergeant at age 19, then receiving a battle field Commission at age 20. All his men were killed, captured or missing only he survived -- what happened? Finally he participated in a seventeen man night patrol, two miles behind enemy lines. This patrol allowed our tanks to break out of the mountains and the ensuing large tank battles.
