Description

The Revolutionary War as never told before.

The breathtaking latest installment in Bill O’Reilly and Martin Dugard’s mega-bestselling Killing series transports readers to the most important era in our nation’s history, the Revolutionary War. Told through the eyes of George Washington, Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Jefferson, and Great Britain’s King George III, Killing England chronicles the path to independence in gripping detail, taking the reader from the battlefields of America to the royal courts of Europe. What started as protest and unrest in the colonies soon escalated to a world war with devastating casualties. O’Reilly and Dugard recreate the war’s landmark battles, including Bunker Hill, Long Island, Saratoga, and Yorktown, revealing the savagery of hand-to-hand combat and the often brutal conditions under which these brave American soldiers lived and fought. Also here is the reckless treachery of Benedict Arnold and the daring guerilla tactics of the “Swamp Fox” Frances Marion. A must read, Killing England reminds one and all how the course of history can be changed through the courage and determination of those intent on doing the impossible.

  • Charging for a sample is bad business

    Charging people to read a sample of the “thug” cursed language is like charging a potential buyer for a look at the outside of the new car they plan to buy. Maybe one recipe or something would be worth $3 but even that seems like a rip off. I planned to buy this book but after being charged for reading through trashy language, I will find my recipes elsewhere.
  • Great quick read that will explain our birth as a nation

    An excellent book to start an exploration of how we came to be as a nation. Written with the flair of a novel you can not put down. Both highly entertaining and informative.
  • Excellent Book, Brought the Revolutionary WarAlive

    My first read of a “killing series” book, and it is excellent. A historian myself, I wanted to see how the book compared, especially on George Washington, to other historical renditions—it was excellent. In fact, I learned some new facts by reading this book, both on Washington, but also on the Revolution itself. For that, I am grateful. A good and fast read for all!
  • The best of the Killing Series!

    Great book, read it twice. I have it in hard back, signed by Mr O’Reilly. Everyone should read this book, it’s worth it.
  • Faux News in Book Form

    o'Reilly has laughed all the way to the bank with his so called history books. He assumes and makes conclusions based on no historical evidence for many of the pages found within. Skip it.
  • Fascinating!

    This was a fascinating, book that you will have to pry yourself from, if you want to keep commitments (like going to work, ha ha). This book is a little different because I am used to copious footnotes and references in history books, while this one is written more like a novel. There are notes on each chapter in the back of the book, which add a little more detail. On the other hand, I would appreciate it if those who pan the book would explain WHY they did so. To say it is “inaccurate” without giving verifiable facts, makes me wonder if they are writers for CNN 😱.
  • Great book!

    Learned more than I did from previous books on the subject. Didn’t want it to end. Looking forward to the next book!

    Overall interesting. However, since this book is titled “killing England” and not The American Revolution: it would have been nice if more attention could have been given to the other factors contributing to England’s lost of international standing.
