Killing England Audiobook 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.
In Killing England the authors tell the story of the American Revolution through the eyes of George Washington, Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Jefferson, and Great Britain’s King George III. O’Reilly and Dugard also focus on major battles such as Bunker Hill, Long Island, Saratoga and Yorktown.
Killing England Audiobook Reviews
This is another great book written by O’Reilly and Dugard. It may be the best yet. It is a history book written almost like a novel. Not as yet finished but on this Sunday with all the negative press about the NFL and not standing for the National Anthem, I had to post this. As I read what American Patriots endured, yes endured, and how thousands died to fight the British, I am even more sickened by what the privileged NFL players and NBA players and now MLB players are doing and not doing. I suggest that before someone criticize this early post, they read the book FIRST! It is both an amazing and very instructional read.
I have read all of O’Reilly’s books and Killing England is the best of them all. It is a book that for me was very hard to put down. O’Reilly laid out in great detail how the Founding Fathers of our nation where mere humans with great traits and flaws alike. How America was created by a lot of very difficult and at times torture by those fighting for our independence.
I love England but in all honesty was shocked to learn about how the British at that time treated prisoners of war. In 2017 it is just hard to understand how one human being could be so cruel to another but then look at the world today – not much has changed since 1776 in that regard.
My test of a book: Will I read it again – probably. Do I recommend it for others? ABSOLUTELY! Would I buy it as a gift? ABSOLUTELY!
By any measure, this is a highly readable yet superficial exploration of the Revolutionary era in America. While the performance by Mr. Petkoff is professional, the technical production is a distraction. There are many ‘dubs’, for whatever reason, and the changes in tone, volume and cadence is sloppy technical work.
I have great respect for Mr. O’Reilly. His spoken preface is awful. It He lacks cadence, inflection and tone. I will ponder this when I watch his broadcasts henceforth.
