Publisher's Summary

This audiobook 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-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.

    "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.

    "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.

    What made the experience of listening to Killing England the most enjoyable?

    Another terrific history book from O'Reilly & Dugard. Lots of interesting little tidbits about the men and women who fought for our independence. Well written and well researched. Should be required reading in all history classes.

    "A great book to learn history in detail"

    The truth about America and why it is so great comes from the details and facts about the lives of the Founding Fathers. This book covers it all. It should be a study guide in all middle schools and high schools throughout the United States. Perhaps it will be the way to help snowflakes understand what a precious gift from God this country is.

    "His best book yet!"

    This is O'Reilly's best Killing book yet. Everything comes to life in the details of the Founding Fathers. His references to myth vs. reality helped dispel some of the things we were brought up to believe about that era.

    "What a struggle to make this Country"

    Fantastic book I listened to it Twice,
    The absolute agony these men went through to create a country for freedom , and a constitution to keep it that way.... everyone that lives in this Country should read this book . You should know who these people were , especially now when so many lies are being spread about our founders, thier blood and lives sacrificed for this Country and the blood shed for us to live in the greatest place on earth!

    "My Favorite Bill O'Reilly book yet"

    This book should be taught in school, it doesn't leave out the details that should be taught about the founding fathers. It has so much info that I missed out on that would have give other classmates a different perspective on everything that happened. Being a 23 looking all that's going on with around the country to all the founding fathers statues and the disrespect to there memory, this could give a fact based argument against the ignorance. Hands down the book about the revolutionary war.
