Product Description
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.

Bill O'Reilly is the anchor of The O'Reilly Factor, the highest-rated cable news show in the country. He is the author of the number-one bestsellers Killing Lincoln, Killing Kennedy, Killing Jesus, Killing Patton, and Killing Reagan.

Martin Dugard is the New York Times bestselling author of several books of history. He and his wife live in Southern California with their three sons.

Awesome book, uncles served in WWII and now I know what they experienced. Should be a must read for our current and new generation of college attendees. Gave me insight of that time of war and possible futures. Pray common sense prevails.

I just finished "Killing The Rising Sun" and learned so much! Yes it is graphic. But I only think of those brave service members who experienced personally the war and to read about it pales. Thank you Bill and Martin for your fine work. It is so important to remember all those who sacrificed so so much.

Having read and enjoyed all of the rest of his books, I am certain that this one will be as excellent. I am looking forward to purchasing his latest edition in the near future.
