Earlier this year, when I visited Kennedy Space Center and met Astronaut John Blaha, I asked him what his favorite book was. He replied that his favorite recent read was Killing Patton. He talked for so long on it that Dan didn't even get to ask his question and security had to start pushing us out so other people could meet him. As soon as I left the meeting area, I purchased this book and have no regrets. It is extremely well researched and written and does not read like a 'typical' history book. The book was informative and interesting and I look forward to reading more in this series including the book Killing Lincoln.
If you are interested, please purchase the book
