Summary
Patton was the most controversial American general in World War II-- and also one of the most successful. In 1945, he was involved in a mysterious car crash that left him partially paralyzed. Two weeks later he was dead. Witness testimony on the crash conflicted, key players in the incident disappeared, official reports vanished-- and there was no autopsy
