Description

The Revolutionary War as never told before.

This breathtaking 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 guerrilla 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

    By Yackie Jack
    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.

    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!
