BILL O'REILLY & Martin Dugard
THE SHOCKING ASSASSINATION THAT CHANGED AMERICA FOREVER. This is a history story that reads like no other you will probably ever read unless Bill O'Reilly does another. About all I knew of Lincoln's death was that he was shot by John Wilkes Booth in a theater. Now that I have read this narrative I could sit down and tell the whole story from the Union winning the war, Grant and Lee's final battles to the whole plot of Lincoln's death, and Booth's escape into Maryland, and Virginia. Now the dates, times, and places are all cemented in my memory like no other history story I ever read. For my part, reading history was always something close to getting a tooth pulled at the dentist. Boy! Did this change my view.
A couple of reviews
"As a history major, I wish my required reading had been as well written as this truly vivid and emotionally engaging account of Lincoln'd assassnation. And as a former combat infantry officer, I found myself running for cover at the Civil War battle scenes. This is the story of an American tragedy that changed the course of history. If you think you know this story, you don't until you've read Killing Lincoln. Add historian to Bill O'Reilly's already impressive resumé."
---NELSON DeMILLE, author of The Lion and The Gold Coast
"Killing Lincoln is a must-read historical thriller. Bill O'Reilly recounts the dramatic events of the spring of 1865 with such exhilarating immediacy that you feel like you are walking the streets of Washington, D.C., on the night that John Wilkes Booth shot Abraham Lincoln. This is a hugely entertaining, heart-stopping read."
---VINCE FLYNN, author of American Assassin
