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

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.
