  1. Not surprising at all. His wife definitely knew too… apparently Patton had asked Beatrice to take him out of the hospital 2 days before his death… he knew the something was up even in his hospital. Funny how all the ‘new’ staff doctors who were assigned to him last 2 days of his hospital stay mysteriously disappeared straight after… Alot of books I have read on Patton disregard the important details of the accident too.
    Shame on Eisenhower…I hope he repented before he passed away… I do wonder on the part played by Bradley though, I highly doubt he was innocent and at least played a passive part of this assassination…he definitely would have motivations to do so.

    I do realise Patton wasn’t a perfect man,,, but I also know he had devout Christian faith… and I would still prefer his leadership over Eisenhower’s any day…
    It is definitely a shame that they got away with it… but moving forward… alot of good and noble men have been ‘suicided’ or killed by ‘accident’ as the list is endless..

    Fortunately,,, I am a stronger believer in God’s justice… ‘as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment’ Hebrews 9:27
    Looking forward to your updates they are very insightful… have you considered writing a book…? ….

    Thank you and God Bless…

    1. I just received a copy Patton’s medical records which I’m currently reviewing & hope to update, correct & add new info to this site in the next few weeks.

      The doctors are responsible for his death. Patton had been rallying from his accident & was regaining movement of all his extremities & was improving everyday. The movie “Last Days of Patton” was totally inaccurate. Patton had regained movement of both arms & legs & made amazing improvements each day until the night of the 19th. His vitals did not match the symptoms. Nor did his lab work. His heart, Temperature & respirations were perfect as was his blood work & Xrays.

      On Dec 19 Th, Patton’s medicines were changed & he was given toxic mixtures of dangerous drugs improperly prescribed which created false symptoms of severe decline which was not reflected in his stats. The symptoms were not of natural origin. I believe it was deliberate & done on the order of Eisenhower. Ike had begun his campaign for the presidency on Dec 10, 1945… The day Patton was to return to the US but conveniently had his neck broken the previous day. Patton had made it known that he was going to reveal Ike’s dirty laundry to the public upon his return to the USA to prevent Ike from becoming president. There were 3 previous attempts on Patton’s life that same year. Patton knew they were out to silence him. 3 weeks earlier, General Summerall warned him they were going to harm him.

      When Patton started recovering from his injuries & preparations were being made to return him to the US on Dec 30th they decided to eliminate Patton by making it appear he had taken a sudden turn for the worse by giving him bad drugs.

      Dr Spurling was sent to Germany by Eisenhower to “handle” Patton’s care. Spurling was appointed Chief of neurosurgery for Walter Reed Army Hospital just days before Patton’s death as Spurling’s bribe for taking care of Patton for Ike by ensuring Patton never recovered or returned to the US while making it appear natural.

      They not only gave Patton toxic levels of digitalis he did not need, they also repeatedly gave him atropine, calcium, Thiamine, blood plasma & a mercury compound in his IV during those last 3 days. These are all listed on Patton’s hospital charts I am now reviewing. You might find it interesting to look up the side effects of those medications. Patton’s health took a sudden nosedive from his miraculous recovery after they added these drugs to his treatment on Dec 19th until his death on the 21st. To those with no medical background, the symptoms appeared like a natural decline.

      Unfortunately, they got away with it.
