The Killing of General Patton, by William E. Chambers
Burton Wells is a veteran of World War II, during part of which he served as an aid to General George Patton. In current times he is haunted by nightmares about Patton's death in a jeep accident shortly after the war attended. And he has reasons for those nightmares.
Things get worse when a young Ukrainian shows up at Wells' apartment. He has a fat file of KGB secrets and a plan to get rich with them...
Mr. Chambers has written an intriguing story. I wonder if he was aiming for the MWA anthology of cold war stories? It would have been a good fit there.
