Killing the Rising Sun (by Bill O’Reilly and Martin Dugard) … the real details of the Pacific conflict and the horrors

This was another wonderful book in the “killing” series by Bill O’Reilly. I enjoyed this book. It was a learning experience for me. I knew of the atomic bombings in Japan, but I didn’t know all of the background and behind the scenes information of WWII and the Pacific conflict.

The authors do a great job of providing details but also bringing a sympathetic and human side to the story. They encourage the reader to visit the memorials and museums…something I would love to do if given the opportunity. I feel it is important to learn the truth about the horrific events of the past in order that they not be repeated.

I have enjoyed all of the books I’ve read in this series. This one did not disappoint. I am glad Bill O’Reilly has taken on the task of bringing various aspects of history to light and presents it so that we can learn and grow with the knowledge.
