The Revolutionary War as never told before.
The breathtaking latest installment in Bill O'Reilly and Martin Dugard's mega-best-selling Killing series transports listeners 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 listener 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" Francis Marion. A must-listen, 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.

The American Revolution Comes Alive
This is the one of the best and most accurately-lively books on the events leading up to and surrounding the hard fought colonial victory that brought the United States of America into existence. With so much controversy and disrespect in America today for the lives and practices of the Founding Fathers of America, all Americans should read this book. It is easy to read, well documented, and provides a vivid picture of the price they had to pay for rebellion against England to establish the greatest constitutional republic yet founded in the world. My thanks to the authors for their painstaking research and love for American History that breathes life and excitement throughout the book. Historical truth is what engenders the respect that America's past deserves in spite of its imperfections.

You Must Read This Book
If you are interested in history and have a curious mind as to what life was like at the beginning of our country this is a must read. I learned many facts about the people who participated in our freedom. Not exactly what we learned in school Goes into great detail.

Everyone in the U. S. Should read this book.
This is the first book that I immediately wanted to start over as soon as I finished. It made me marvel at the supreme incompetence of my high school history teacher who managed to make this story tedious and boring.
