NEW YORK (AP) — Fox News host Bill O'Reilly's fourth book in his multimillion-selling history series will examine the mysterious death surrounding famed World War II Gen. George Patton.

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.

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."
