More About the Author
After five best-selling books and a memoir, Bill has taken to writing about history. Killing Lincoln was first, followed by Killing Kennedy, and then Killing Jesus. The latest book, Killing Patton, chronicles what Bill calls "the strange death of WWII's most audacious general." From the description, "General George S. Patton, Jr. died under mysterious circumstances in the months following the end of World War II. For almost seventy years, there has been suspicion that his death was not an accident-and may very well have been an act of assassination. Killing Patton takes readers inside the final year of the war and recounts the events surrounding Patton's tragic demise, naming names of the many powerful individuals who wanted him silenced."
Like the others, Killing Patton hit the top of the New York Times best seller list its first week in the marketplace.
The National Geographic Channel's movie version of the Lincoln book was such a big hit that Killing Kennedy also got the Hollywood treatment - and an Emmy nomination to boot. The third movie in the series, based on Killing Jesus, will premiere on Nat Geo in the spring.
Bill is also the Executive Producer of a new Fox News Channel series called Legends and Lies. It's about what really happened in the American West; the straight story about General Custer, Jesse James, Davey Crockett among other historical American figures. You'll like it.
And here's some additional advance news: Bill is currently working on another book in the "Killing" series. Look out for more information on that.
We also can't forget that somehow, in the midst of all his activities, Bill is a highly sought after guest on top television talk shows, and that he and Dennis Miller continue their highly popular personal appearances across the country. The newly minted Don't Be a Pinhead! tour promises a great night. Go, and enjoy.
Some background about Bill: he grew up on Long Island, got a BA from Marist College (in history, naturally), a Master's Degree in Broadcast Journalism from Boston University, and a second MA in Public Administration from The Kennedy School of Government at Harvard.
Bill's love of history led him to teach it in high school before going into broadcasting, and he's been a long time collector of important historical documents.
Bill believes life offers no shortcuts, no compromises, no letup. And as he always acknowledges, nothing happens without "the folks" -- that would be you.

and their possible motivations and personal reasons for wishing him harm. Although the subject of Lincoln's assassination has been written about many times over the years, O'Reilly takes you in for a close-up view of the man himself, Lincoln, and the murderer, John Wilkes Booth, and his cronies. An interesting read, historically accurate, written with enough drama and intrigue to keep the reader engaged until the end.
In Killing Kennedy, O'Reilly once again delves deeper into the personality and character flaws of President Kennedy and those closest to him, including his brother, Robert, and his wife, Jackie, as well as Vice President Lyndon Johnson. It is clear that O'Reilly believes Lee Harvey Oswald acted alone, although throughout the book he mentions other possible scenarios. His description of the personality of Lyndon Baines Johnson and his quest for power, was especially enlightening.
