Audio Book Summary

This program features an introduction read by Bill O'Reilly.

The Revolutionary War as never told before.

The breathtaking latest installment in Bill O’Reilly and Martin Dugard’s mega-bestselling 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” Frances 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.

    I really enjoyed this book. I love history and this book puts you in the shoes of Washington, Jefferson, and Franklin. Narration is clear and enjoyable, although I do wish O'Reilly could read the whole book.

    This is my first book to read or listen to by O'Reilly. . The narration is clear, with intonation by the narrator. Material in the book is amply footnoted for asides, sidebars, etc. At one point O'Reilly covers the treason by Benedict Arnold and his accomplice John Andre. And then he alludes to Nathan Hale's execution. I wish O'Reilly had covered Nathan Hale as well. The part about Andrew Jackson is also a great addition, especially since Jackson has gotten some shade in recent times. That the British were so brutal to their American cousins is shocking.

    Just finished listening to Killing England; a great book. . All middle school kids should read this book. They would learn so much about the development of our country, the challenges our forefathers experienced, and what our country went through to gain independence. But, our schools won't allow this suggestion because of the liberal attitudes towards Bill O'Reilly.
