The strong and riveting new novel in the multimillion-selling Killing set by Martin Dugard and Bill O’Reilly
Fall 1944. World War II is almost over in Europe but is escalating in the Pacific, where American soldiers confront an adversary who’ll go to any length to prevent defeat. The Japanese military follows the samurai code of Bushido, stipulating that surrender is a kind of dishonor.
Across the world in Los Alamos, New Mexico, Dr. J. Robert Oppenheimer and his team of scientists are preparing to examine the most lethal weapon known to humankind.
And despite a substantial and mounting death toll, Emperor Hirohito, who’s considered a deity by his areas, refuses to surrender, in Tokyo. Told in an identical page-turning fashion of Killing Jesus, Killing Kennedy, Killing Lincoln, Killing Patton, and Killing Reagan, this epic saga details the closing minutes of World War II like never before.
