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.

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.

Fascinating look at our founders

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.

Excellent!

While I am no fan of Bill O’Reilly as a broadcaster, his “Killing...” books are absolutely fascinating reads; and Killing England is no exception. Every American should read and understand the long-forgotten struggle to free this nation from the grip of English tyranny. The suffering, the risks, the razor thin line by which we “won” the war...and the absolute luck that many were fortunate to have, which saved our cause. This book puts it all into perspective, and will garner a new appreciation for our founding fathers and all those who fought, suffered, died and risked everything so that WE could be free. This should be required reading in every school.

Our Great Country

I never really heard how horrific the War Of Independence was. I don't know how we gained our freedom from the richest, best trained and equipped military in the world at the time, but with God's help and the most awsum American in the world, they did it. What a story, what a fantastic country the best ever.

The cliff notes version of the revolution

This book hits the highlights of the American revolution. I recommended this book to people who want a quick overview and then suggest going
For more in depth books. I liked the narrator he reads the new Star Trek novels

Killing England

Great writing of history! I will listen to it again. I appreciated the realism and realize that we would not have our independence if it weren’t for Washington. Thank you.

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.
