The powerful and riveting new book in the multimillion-selling Killing series by Bill O'Reilly and Martin Dugard

Autumn 1944. World War II is nearly over in Europe but is escalating in the Pacific, where American soldiers face an opponent who will go to any length to avoid defeat. The Japanese army follows the samurai code of Bushido, stipulating that surrender is a form of dishonor. Killing the Rising Sun takes readers to the bloody tropical-island battlefields of Peleliu and Iwo Jima and to the embattled Philippines, where General Douglas MacArthur has made a triumphant return and is plotting a full-scale invasion of Japan.

Across the globe in Los Alamos, New Mexico, Dr. J. Robert Oppenheimer and his team of scientists are preparing to test the deadliest weapon known to mankind. In Washington, DC, FDR dies in office and Harry Truman ascends to the presidency, only to face the most important political decision in history: whether to use that weapon. And in Tokyo, Emperor Hirohito, who is considered a deity by his subjects, refuses to surrender, despite a massive and mounting death toll. Told in the same page-turning style of Killing Lincoln, Killing Kennedy, Killing Jesus, Killing Patton, and Killing Reagan, this epic saga details the final moments of World War II like never before.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from looking forward to this! Killing Lincoln gave me an intro to Civil War history. I learned more about the civil rights movement and about JFK's pre-presidential life in Killing Kennedy. Killing Patton taught me about Rommel and Patton and something more about Hitler. I knew nothing about Reagan's assassin before i read Killing Reagan. these are not 'political' books at all, just a good read, not dry, and i am hooked. I've read Helmet For My Pillow, and other pacific war memoirs, but i bet i will learn a lot from this new book too. it's not released but i had to star the review. just assuming it's five star like all the others.
