The mysterious death surrounding famed World War II Gen. George Patton is the subject of the fourth book in Fox News host Bill O'Reilly's multimillion-selling history series.
Stephen Rubin, president and publisher of Henry Holt and Company, announced Wednesday that "Killing Patton" will be published on Sept. 23. Martin Dugard will be the co-author.

Patton was a charismatic yet controversial commander who led an armored drive across France and into Nazi Germany after the invasion of Normandy. He died following an automobile accident in 1945, according to The Associated Press.
O'Reilly's previous history series best-sellers include "Killing Kennedy: The End of Camelot," "Killing Lincoln: The Shocking Assassination That Changed America Forever" and "Killing Jesus: A History."
In an interview with USA Today last October, O'Reilly, a former high-school history teacher, said he writes "history that's fun to read" in a "populist way
. No pinheaded stuff."
The anchor added that most of the research is done by Dugard while he handles the writing.
