Killing Patton

Our most recent road trip allowed us to listen to an audiobook called Killing Patton which details the last year of World War II and the odd circumstances of the car crash that ended up killing the general.  It's a fascinating recollection of the battles and individual heroism that defined the war, but the atrocities some German and Russian soldiers were capable of inflicting were very disturbing.  I have a newfound appreciation for Harry Truman, who might have been the only leader back then who did not have a mistress.
